SOPHIE LOURDES KNIGHT is a multidisciplinary artist from California working in painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography. She received a BTEC in Art & Design from Wimbledon College of Art and a BFA in Painting & Drawing from California College of the Arts. She currently lives and works in London, UK where she is an MFA candidate at the Slade School of Fine Art. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
Within the studio, Sophie's core interests revolve around notions of failure and ideas of what success could be, attempting to overcome ‘failure’ by making and remaking: failure as success, as subject, as object. Subject matter is constructed with loose characters and objects inhabiting barren interiors and exteriors in an exploration of familiarity, sentiment, and the bizarre.
