Sophie Mathieson

Artist statement

My goal is to create mesmerising creatures that are vile yet beautiful and capture the viewers imagination. I do this through traditional methods using paint, pens and pencils on paper, but the monsters can take physical form as dolls, stitched together with old toys and fabrics. I don’t have one source of inspiration although my key sources are horror movies, books and music. I aim to bring parts of my personality into my work to vent personal emotions which I believe adds to the monstrosity of my work.
