Sophie KnightOakland CA USA
Sophie Lourdes Knight is an American born British artist living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work cross-wires materials with time and memory, where she paints distinctly disconcerting portraits that refuse to meet your gaze and objects/sculptures that are whited out, devoid of their own natural visual pleasures and reincarnated as primed shrines to what they were. The everyday blends with the ambiguous in her work, in these recent abstract pieces she is blending form and color abruptly to form candid moments of uncertainty.
