Sophie Derrick Art

Her work incorporates the two mediums of painting and photography. She has a great interest in the materiality and substance of paint, and executes this interest through photography, creating a juxtaposition of the two mediums. Shephotograph the act of painting on toskin and then paints on top of the photographs, creating a layering of image of paint and painted image. Her body becomes the canvas for the paint, questioning the traditional concept of painting and portraiture, and the barriers between painting and photography. The body becomes both object and subject in the work.
