Sofia is a Toronto-based textile artist born in Peru. Her practice consists of examining and pushing the way in which textiles are experienced by recreating visual renditions of them and thereby challenging their general perception. Driven by her interest in the visual representation of textile construction, she aims to re-purpose the functional and visual meaning of them.
Sofia's work is based on finding a new visual language inspired by a phenomenological approach to textiles. With this she wishes to explore the limitless boundaries of imagined physical interaction that fills the void left by playing with the material and immaterial.
