Dark water drifts across the surface, a star filled sky blankets the background. Focus is drawn to luminous shapes across glass like waves where three women stand, ghost like amongst the dark water. ‘Night Lights’ is a work by Sophia O’Connor who, inspired by landscapes she has visited, creates visually stunning prints. There is a sense of the transitory in the work; they are made from spontaneous drawings and as such her work embraces an attention to detail whilst retaining whimsical and delicate aesthetics. O’Connor has intuitive creativity and paints scenes which communicate an evocative, mysterious quality.
