New Blood Art Statement

Softly reflecting on the natural world and the process of painting itself, this body of work provides a window into the studio practice of Sophie Fraser. This is an artist exquisitely observing the world around her -  within this current body of work we see soft blue light woven from abstraction to definition, witnessing her sheer enjoyment of painting.

Artist Statement

My work explores my relationship with the landscape. The aim is to capture my initial reaction to a scene and to harness that feeling of energy. Currently I am working on a series of landscape paintings which portray coastal areas and moorland within west Cornwall, capturing this place in an invigorating and evocative way. Paint application and texture are key aspects within my work, directional brush strokes and strong textural echoes of the desired landscape come through within my paintings. Something draws me into the landscape and I want to capture my own connection with the ever-changing surroundings. I wish to compel viewers into remembering my art and thinking about what a particular piece says to them and how my own style suggests a strong sense of the subject matter. I’ve always immersed myself in art, ever since I was little I’ve been fascinated with creating my own work and personal style. After being questioned by an artist ‘would you like to be an artist when you grow up?’...in my own words I answered (aged 4) ‘I am an artist’ whilst submerged in several paintings. When creating a piece of art I feel a sense of purpose and achievement, bringing something to the world that others can appreciate in an individual and personal way makes me feel alive.
