Sophie Glover lives and works in South-East London. Through her oil paintings, drawings and jewellery, she explores themes of love, longing and loss reflected through the eyes of the women around her. Sophie uses visceral colours and often depicts women resting, heavy as rocks, as a symbolic representation of solitude and resilience. Inspired by the memorial jewellery she saw growing up among jewellers on Hatton Garden, her Lover's Eye jewellery collection was released last year and the bespoke pieces continue to form a new and tactile side to Sophie's practice.
Sophie was awarded Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts and has been long-listed for the BP Portrait Award. She has undertaken several residencies as well as participating in multiple solo and group exhibitions across the UK, France and Sweden.
"Using bodily & vibrant colours to render still lives and portraits layered with symbolism, I explore themes of seasonal ritualism, caregiving and women.”
