Sofya Shpurova b. 1996

The most fascinating thing related to painting of course, is the element of time and what this temporal register does in each work.

Sofya Shpurova is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice mainly involves methodical biographical associations that are formed from the rejection of imagery. Sofya’s archeological process of re-finding images through cathartic deaths of meanings is severely introspected.
Her paintings are a form self plagiarisation, reiterations of self-portraits that are concerned with self-consciousness. Expelling codified and decoded images allows for philosophical mobility and a sense of acuteness in her work.
Sofya Shpurova graduated 2019 from Slade School of Fine Art in London and is now working between London and Moscow.
