Not being one to cut corners, her work takes the form of relief prints, created using the lengthy process of lino-cutting. Her personal work tackles themes from meteoric folklore to alchemical symbolism and she’s interested in wrangling the most out-there ideas to make them totally tangible.
This collaboration takes on the cautionary tales of Struwwelpeter. Classic cautionary tales feel like a prevalent theme after this past year. Der Struwwelpeter is an 1845 German children’s book by Heinrich Hoffmann. It comprises ten illustrated and rhymed stories, mostly about children. Each has a clear moral that demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehaviour in an exaggerated way. The title of the first story provides the title of the whole book.
Sophie has produced a hand-carved linocut, which will then be embroidered and screen printed on our 220-gram cotton jersey all in London.
