Inspired by a visit to the market or an exotic garden, Sophie Dunlop relishes the unique and intricate details of each object she conveys. Her meticulous style is countered with a curious eye and unconventional composition, to provide the viewer with a fresh yet thoughtful vision of the familiar. Echoing the evocative nature of a bromeliad or a luxurious oriental carpet, which are favourite motifs, Sophie imbues her subject matter with a quality that goes beyond the purely visual. She injects the canvas with intensified colour and texture so that the viewer may go beyond the surface to touch and smell the succulent flesh or the foliage she paints, to embrace the luxurious weight of the exotic fabrics.
