Sophie’s Choice – curated and bought by Sophie Parkin 29May-June 23rd
29 May 2015 @ 12:00 am - 26 June 2015 @ 12:00 am
Sophie ¬ÝParkin ¬Ýhas been collecting pictures for as long as she has been making them, longer. So¬Ýthere is quite a collection of all sorts from artists she was at St Martin’s with to artists she knew in St Ives ¬Ýand Newlyn to her years in London, or just finding things in auction.
The Grosvenor School, Wandela Borrell, Harry Diamond, Cecil Beaton, Wilma, Patrick Hughes, Sarah Lucas, Arthur Moyse, ¬ÝArthur Studd, George Melly, Paul Benney, Karl Weshke, Terry Frost , Paul Sakoilsky etc.
She has had big houses and tiny flats, now she is in a tiny flat and her collection is kept in storage. This is a chance to see some of the choice work hung together; it is eclectic to say the least. ¬ÝSome of it will be for sale. She can’t hold onto everything forever.
‘I hope it will show you a bit of the way my brain works and what I consider to be important in Art. at least some of the pieces might make you laugh.’
