days [blue] depict systems of mesmerising infinitely flowing lines that are structured and playful at the same time are part of a larger series where she studies the behaviour of tools. On a very meta-level, this work is about thinking about systems by depicting systems in a systematic way using tools. These tools are custom-made by a friend using a 3D printer. It allows her to attach different brushes or markers and space them out any way she wants, or add as many as she wants. ‘These ones are all about studying the behaviours of tools,’ she has said, ‘how they move, how they want to naturally behave, and in turn how they make my body respond and be limited by them.’ So it’s about the systematicness of these movements of creating. She explains that she arrived at this practice by studying calligraphy and letterforms. ‘The curves and intersections of these shapes come from a sort of muscle-memory from painting letterforms again and again.’

About the artist

In a world that is becoming increasingly unsettled, Argentina born artist Sofía Clausse investigates different kinds of systems through art. Repetition, time, language and translation, cycles, weaving, it’s an entangled web of systematic things she uses as material for observation using painting, paper, text, and custom made tools. She has graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently pursuing an MFA at the Royal Academy in London. In her work, the process of art-making and thinking through that process lies at the heart. ‘I am questioning my ways of thinking and making,’ she says, ‘and thus creating an idiosyncratic and personal process’. So the process itself, looking for systems, exploring its possibilities including its limitations, and finding meaning, guides her practice. She’s been exploring this by using text, letterforms, and the system of writing as the material in itself. She can mould, shape and explore the possibilities of these materials to see what they can do and how they could behave. ‘Through transforming, abstracting, or fragmenting, I want to explore the expressions and gestures of how my language, tools, body, spaces, and limitations function. My practice continues growing in spirals, feeding itself from itself.’
