Sophia Ann West at Flamingosaurus Rex

Sophia WestLaunching Friday 10th February, Flamingosaurus Rex is proud to host the presentation of a new body of work by Sophia Ann West.

An exploration of colour, tone and dimension, from canvas to glass – the exhibition might best be described as a journey of encapsulation.

That most evocative of nature’s moods, the sunset, is Sophia’s inspiration; canvas the vehicle by which it takes shape. Pockets of colour and form are then captured and extruded, reborn into their native dimension by a process of transmutation at the hands of the glass artist. more
