I think the first thing I learnt whilst painting was 'theres no light without the dark' even in the brightest painting, if you look closely theres a whole lot of dark. My childhood was a series of dark events, with a few lighter parts thrown in. Thats why it doesn't scare me to paint dark scenes, I love stormy skies, crashing waves and bleak horizons. They don't make me feel scared or uneasy, they make me feel at home. Chaos is my calm, its what I knew for so long and thats why I love to paint darkness because the more you look, the more light you find. And the light is what I am always searching for. Focusing on light and shadows in Valentina, Sophie wished to portray the light that always comes with darkness. Painting during quarantine in France she thought it essential to create a piece that portrayed the beauty surrounding us in these dark times. The original photograph was taken on a trip to Marseille at Christmas time just before a storm rolled into the shore. 60x76cm Oil on Canvas.
