Sophie Galliers – Corridor Exhibition

Google Map of bs3 1qg

Sophie paints in oils, acrylic and mixed media to create abstract and semi-abstract landscapes and portraiture. Her subjects include the rural beauty of the landscape around her in England and Wales, the exploration of the natural world at a microscopic, cellular level and the expressionist quality of paint when used within portraiture.

Through the process of painting, Sophie seeks to find a balance between shapes, patterns, textures and colours and in doing so, approaches her work in two different ways; Either starting with the random application of colours and marks, building up layers of textures from which shapes and compositions emerge, or  beginning with a more realistic rendering of a subject or place. Sophie also tries to emphasise draughtsmanship within her work, exploring the relationship between the drawn image and the abstract mark.
