Sophie-Elizabeth Thompson's creative output is an organic and instinctive response to the world surrounding her. She finds inspiration in the interplay between natural and manmade forms, observing their physical relationships within life. Her focus lies in the intricate details, extracting elements from the larger context to evoke delicate bone structures, industrial architecture, fluid shapes, and the often overlooked negative spaces between objects.
During the artist's time in the studio, a unique experience takes place within their creative process. Whether it occurs swiftly or after prolonged periods of work, a profound sense of tranquility envelops them. Time seems to halt, and a serene stillness prevails, embodying an extraordinary harmony found only in the present moment. This juncture, referred to as the gap between thoughts, transcends the confines of time, space, and perceived reality. Within it, the artist crafts the purest forms and strokes, unimpeded by conscious thought.
This creative phenomenon arises instinctively, as the artist's subconscious mind opens the floodgates of inspiration, allowing it to take shape through their hands. In this present moment, all of their previous experiences and acquired knowledge converge, leaving an indelible imprint on their artistic expression. The artist's hands become conduits for an automatic and intuitive exploration, as they move inquisitively, guided by a calm and crystal-clear flow from their subconscious mind.
