I have a new blog/art work!
Little Stories by Sophie is a story telling art project.
I am interested in image and text together, and am using this as a way of exploring ideas. Within my art practise I use photography and illustration, and this blog is my virtual studio for experimenting and working out ideas using images and story telling.
The work is created either image first, or text first. Image first uses past images, or images that I feel have potential for stories behind them. The text first stories are created when something happens and I take an image to support that.
This project came about because:
I have geen teaching more illustration and graphics and wanted to explore them as materials for myself.
I needed a new focus for developing my work.
And because through a series of artists research, and conversations with others, the idea of story telling keeps appearing.
The project started on a misty train platform one morning with a series of announcements over the station tannoy.
I hope you check it out!
