Sophia Starling

'Through a process of re-stretching, re-making, revealing, off setting, unveiling, and misplacing, I am exploring the extent to which I can manipulate and push the formal boundaries of painting. The surfaces of my paintings tend to become un-flat and the stretched canvas becomes awkward. The canvases are stretched around a series of circular supports, simultaneously flat and three-dimensional, creating not only the structure of the work but also the composition. Subsequently the form of each one derives more from within the stretching process itself rather than any means of predetermined image making.

Studying for a degree in Painting did not involve to be taught how to paint, but rather learning about the ways of thinking when painting.'


Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Ch-Ch-Ch Changing in April 2013.
