The traditional fine art gallery is dead. Art today must be performative, immersive and experiential.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

SOPHIE BRENNEMAN

Sophie Brenneman’s visual and written work depicts places, both real and imagined, distilled from the leftover memories and impressions of places once known. Blending the real and the remembered, her drawings and poetry reveal places that are as familiar as they are unknown; they are like still scenes from a dream or memory that can’t quite be recalled.

Sophie explains: “I was born in Mississippi but grew up in rural Pennsylvania. The summer months of my childhood were split between North and South—exploring the remote countryside of the deep South through its wet, heavy air, or getting lost in the overgrown corn fields of my family’s Pennsylvania farmland.

“By summer’s end, I could walk into the fields and disappear into my own jungle. I was endlessly mystified and disoriented by the sudden feeling of smallness it gave to me.

“Through my drawings, I try to recreate that sense of disappearing into the landscape, of feeling small again, and being overwhelmed by Nature’s scale and beauty.”
