SOPHIE PETERS

Hi there! Welcome to my site!

I am a visual artist interested in the use of art in protecting human rights, disrupting societal assumptions (particularly regarding gender roles, power systems, consumerism and identity) and representing unheard voices. I am primarily an oil painter, but I also work with acrylics, mixed media, film and text. I believe in the intersection of art with all other aspects of life including science and the politics of the everyday, I think it is most powerful when it captures moments of conflict in our daily lives, making the unnoticed poignant.

I like to think about environmentalism, binaries (abstraction vs representation, power vs weakness) and ways of expressing emotion through visual media to allow me to connect with people. I enjoy using vivid colours, combinations of representational and abstract form and text. Viewing artwork should always be a lively experience, it should engage with people from all walks of life.
