About Sophie Plimpton


IconInspires

What inspires you?

Nature, especially the moss covered woods of Maine. Design. Art Deco. Matisse, Braque. Stained Glass. Psychology. Beautiful strong textures like thick paint applied to the canvas.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I source from various vintage and new magazines and my own personal photography and collect pieces based on their color and shape whether I tear them or cut them out (their edges may be smooth or rough) I then apply Archival glue to adhere them to surfaces including paper, canvas and board on which surface I may have started on a foreground in paint or ink. Each work has its own inner logic, and develops in its own way.
