A solo exhibition showing the work of French artist Sophie Favre.

About

Favre is best known for her generously proportioned human and animal figures that embody an 'animality' (her word for it) that is emphatically 'other' to zoological, anthropological or anatomical accuracy. Her figures have agency. They are not passive. They do not wait to be viewed. They are thinking. It would not be too much to apply the German word 'unheimlich' (uncanny; weird) to describe the atmosphere they create. 

Originally trained as a graphic designer, artist Sophie Favre now works at her studio in Draveil, France. Inhabiting both poignancy and humour, the faces and gestures of Sophies's figurative sculptures express everything that it means to be human, inclusive of all its fragilities and illusions.
