Sophie Treppendahl: A World of People in My Studio
Sophie Treppendahl paints quiet scenes that capture ordinary moments of unexpected bliss. Using light as a tool for abstraction, the artist’s compositions frequently depict colorful interiors full of shapes and shadows—playgrounds for paint and patterns that are rarely populated by figures. Treppendahls’s work explores how the associations contained in pleasant reminiscences bring us together.
