Creating structure in a blank world

Creating structure in a blank world

Material: Oil and charcoal on canvas
Size: 120 x 200 cm

'Creating structure in a blank world' represents the struggle of adaptation and productivity in the human mind. 'A big red figure with a human hand pointing at a miniature landscape within the figure.' Our minds have to adapt to our world while we strive to create our internal ideal world.

Sophia's artwork consists of visual objects, writings and poetry trying to disclose the tension between adaptation, personal development and productivity in herself and the people around her in regard to society. By connecting authentic forms of fine art, such as oil paint, with a strong emotional, subliminal sphere she creates a space where thoughts can linger and develop in the realm of the intuitive. Emotions adapt to rationality and vice versa. Her works are triggered and inspired by psychological and philosophical frameworks and cultural behaviorism. She has exhibited throughout the Netherlands and in Belgium, attended conferences and did extensive research on her fields of interests. Sophia is currently working on projects regarding spheres, representation, adaptation and productivity.
