Sophie Neville

Artist Sophie Neville’s practice combines traditional embroidery and textile crafts with contemporary socio-political subjects. Sophie creates mostly text-based art by hand embroidering into fabric and other textile processes varying in scale which explore complex issues through multiple pieces of text and imagery documenting the ever-changing social politics of this period in time.

 Sophie is interested in how digital culture affects the way society discusses and interacts with politics. For the residency Sophie will be researching and developing a new body of work focusing on language surrounding taste, class and women’s appearance.
