Sophie Smallhorn: Colour East
2004 | vinyl | Jubilee Line Station, north east escalators to mall (interior) | Art Map reference: 43
Geometry and flat saturated colour are the focal points of Sophie Smallhorn’s practice. Her palette of coloured vinyls is deceptively simple: proportion and composition are manipulated to create playful, pleasing juxtapositions.
Smallhorn trained in furniture design, moving into sculpture after graduating. She collaborated with Populous Architects to design a spectrum of colours for the exterior ‘wrap’ and internal features of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.
