Becoming Other: Sophie Derrick

Becoming Other: Sophie Derrick

Sophie Derrick pushes the boundaries of traditional figurative art by becoming the canvas of her own self-portraits. Sophie applies layers of paint as a form of transcendence from herself; becoming something ‘other’ – free from societal labels and roles. Using a variety of mediums such as painting, photography and installation, she pushes herself out to explore a ‘self-less’ state.
