*December artist--Sophie Lee
Sophie Lee is a Californian sun worshipper recently transplanted to Taipei,Taiwan. Her work explores: rhythms of movement; the body in space; dance; and balance in life. She seeks to view the world with maladaptive eyes and to discover beauty in all things great and small.
In this painting, "Portrait of Luna," the muse, is a cat whose instinctive travels set her on a course of discovery and interweaving themes leading her to be reunited with her family on the moon.
Sophie has developed a free-flowing technique of painting (that she calls "impromptu painting") in which she uses instinctive motions to bring life to her subject. Her strokes are gentle yet bold providing ample room for the viewer to meander and ponder upon their own thoughts. The intricate details is a labyrinth of life's dreams and imaginations bringing the viewers further into its space.
