Sophie Smallhorn


Colour West

Jubilee Line Station
Geometry and flat saturated colour are the focal points of Sophie Smallhorn s practice. Her palette of coloured vinyls is deceptively simple: proportion and composition are manipulated to create playful, pleasing juxtapositions.
Smallhorn trained in furniture design, moving into sculpture after graduating. She has since undertaken a range of international exhibitions and commissions, including an installation in One Canada Square in 2004.
Sophie's work explores the relationships between colour, volume and proportion across prints, sculpture and site specific installations.
Compared to public art and wall sculptures, screenprinting offers a degree of creative freedom. She often works alongside friend and fellow Look Up artist Kate Gibb, and while their work couldn t be more different, they share a sense of adventure, exploring the creative potential of print, revealing new ideas and happy accidents.
