Sofia Krook

The Pears
Resident artist

Sofia makes paintings based on childhood photographs of herself or her friends. By studying and recreating these images, she considers how identity is formed, looking to the past as a way of navigating the future. She uses both figurative and abstract elements to represent the body and the mind.


“I have been struggling these past two years to find myself within my neurodivergence, going from not understanding why I’ve always felt so different to accepting the why. It’s similar within my art…With my squares in my work, my portraits, I feel like I am finally beginning to find that balance of what I want to do, combining it with my love for the flat surfaces and abstractness together with the figurative.”
