Sophie Thynne

Sophie is a self taught artist who paints with oils on canvas. Her works draw on themes of fairy tale, grief, bullfights, Flamenco - visceral emblems of life and death, dark and light.

Sophie’s paintings frequently use colour fields and feature figurative imagery. She uses these elements - a lone magpie, a dying bull, a girl holding on to a cliff edge by her fingertips against bold blocks of colour in ways that speak of bravery and ultimately hope.
