In 2004 Sophie began showing work in Los Angeles and has participated in several group and solo shows focusing her work on light, the sun and the polar regions. Her work resides in collections in the USA and UK.
"The large mesmerizing paintings have mandala-like qualities, and illuminate our relationship with the sun and the cosmos. Her work is often inspired by ancient earth works of astronomical significance, calendars, clocks, astrolabes, and the alchemy of the sun. Drawing on visual geometries and scientific ideas, she uses stone, metal, metallic paints, resins, leaf and asemic texts and seeks to form unexpected transfigurations of light. The circle is her romance with the void and resolves to represent the un-manifest, the non-rational, the potential, and the axis mundi of the spirit."
