The Growlery presents Sofie Ramos’ soft like boundaries, a lived-in painting. The exhibit is the culmination of a three month project where, while residing at 235 Broderick, Sofie transformed her dwelling into art. Sofie revealed the first part of her installation in early July, a painting covering her entire bedroom: objects, walls, ceiling, and floor. In the following months, while living inside her painting, Sofie spread her artistic mark throughout the Growlery. Her painting in space, is also a painting in time—existing as a stop-motion video in addition to the resulting physical manifestation. You are invited to explore and enjoy.
Inspired by everyday material, Sofie Ramos curates found objects and patterns. She makes the familiar strange through hyperboles of form and color and unexpected juxtaposition of the whimsical and specific.
Sofie recently completed the Artist in Residence program at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park. She has shown at Mixed Greens Gallery, New York and Incline Gallery, San Francisco.
