SOPHIE IVES
Wivenhoe

Sophie Ives trained in Fine Art at Brighton, where she began making murals using big black and white drawings. She found that she was not getting the results she wanted quickly enough by working from the sketches and photographs she had made of close-ups of "forgotten places" such as pipes or drawing pins. When these ordinary shapes were blown up to a human scale, they took on a strange beauty and appeared to be floating in space. She at once transferred from portrait painting to photography. Continuing to play with scale, she finds the unexpectedly organic, even human, forms that emerge more important than colour.
