Sophie Plimpton

Sophie Plimpton

Born: 1985

Hometown: Boston

Based in: New York City

Sophie Plimpton was born in Boston and currently lives and works in New York City.

She received her BS degree from The New School and studied at Bennington, Parsons and NYU. She danced at the Boston Ballet School from 1993-2002, and she is fluent in French having lived, studied and worked in Paris for several years. Sophie has participated in the Art Fair Spring/Break Art Show, a solo show at The Tavern Club in Boston, a group show at Station Independent Gallery in Manhattan, and curated two shows in Chelsea. Sophie has been featured in a group show at the Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City, and has completed multiple commissions, including Cadreon-Interpublic Group. Her work is featured in private collections in France, the US and the UK.

Sophie’s collage integrates photographic images, from her own digital photography, and fragments from various vintage and new publications. Her use of acrylics, pen and ink and paper cut-outs evoke playful symmetries with roots in movement, dance and references to both Classical and Contemporary art.

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.
