Sophie Derrick is a British artist who exploits the transformative and alchemic properties of painting, photography and sculpture pushing out the ‘self’ resulting in a ‘self-less’ state.
Through her practice, Derrick blanks out and departs from herself transcending the artist, the woman and becoming ‘agender’ with the single motive of demonstrating the possibility of reaching a place where we too can be ‘other’. Sophie Derrick’s practice is founded on self-portraiture, but her blending of sculptural painting and performative photography successfully transcends any traditional interpretation.
