About the Work

Medium: Acrylic on tissue paper

Signed: On the back

Condition: Brand new

Certificate of Authenticity: Included

This piece, the Solar Rug, is made of tissue paper. This piece can be understood as working in the context of Sofía’s broader interest in textile objects and techniques. These pieces use paper as the main material and parallel lines as a constant gesture. These lines are developed from marks generated by custom-made tools, and as a result of her background and research on letterforms in typography. She refers to the sun because she had been contemplating the passage of time and the sun symbolises that.

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.’
