SOPHIE LOURDES KNIGHT OAK 2023
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, a BFA in Painting & Drawing from California College of the Arts, and an MFA from Slade School of Fine Art. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Sophie currently lives and works in London.
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.
You can view these artworks in person in our Oakland gallery through March 10th.
