Sophie Klerk is a Danish collage artist. She has previously lived and worked in the Netherlands, England, Mexico and most recently in New Zealand, all part of shaping her unique, minimalist and expressive style.
It is curiosity and challenge of the unknown that inspire me to explore the interaction between different papers, colours, shades and textures, thread, paint and photos. The composed and stitched together collages often refer to the prior use of the materials. I work very intuitively and build up stories - chaos turns into order, wholeness and new contexts.
