Biography and career

Sophie Klerk

I am interested in the stories we use to navigate our way through the world. I draw and explore with my paper and build up stories in my compositions.

I am intrigued by the relation- ship between colours, texture and shapes and work very intuitively allowing the unexpected to emerge.

I create my artwork by layering paper, found materials and paint combined with my own photography and found anonymous images. The layered and stitched together collages create contrasts that evoke echoes of the past and present.
