Sophie Gough

Since graduating from Limerick School of Art and Design with a first class honours BA in Sculpture and Combined Media June 2016, Sophie Gough has exhibited in numerous group shows with the Dada Post, Berlin, Gallery Port, Iceland, Solstice Arts Centre, Co.Meath, The Lay of the Land Project: Tombolo, Co.Cork, TACTIC, Cork City, 126 Gallery, Galway and opened her first solo show in April 2017 with TACTIC. She has been awarded residencies with The National Sculpture Factory, Ireland, Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, The Lay of the Land Project: Tombolo, Mizen Head and Sample Studios, Cork City.

 

Her practice is driven by an interest in the contemporary issue of the blurred distinction between the organic and inorganic, particularly within landscapes and architecture, through the juxtaposition and representation of familiar materials. Gough focuses on this fusion and re-presentation of familiar materials through disrupting the relationships that we have with them in the making of art objects and installations.

Currently, she lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
