ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
This new series of drawings by artist Sophia Gallo grew from her reflecting on her art process and creative goals as she transitioned post art school into adulthood. The drawings were created in October of 2021 following a creative decline.
Sophia notes that she began to contemplate her creative intentions, assess where she wanted to grow and change as an artist and what artistic tendencies she found comfort in, and commit to nurturing them. She explains that "formal art education always made me feel as though there was a tension between the different kinds of images I make. One being more observational, narrative, on the edge of surreal but bound to realism. The other is more experimental, employing patterns, expansive spaces, favoring objects and animals, and symbolism over direct representation. These drawings drift back and forth between both styles with the drawing "Aspirations" as the culmination of my reflection, representing my most self assured artistic identity, all facets existing in stylistic harmony."
