Sofia is a Toronto-based textile artist born and raised in Peru and Canada. Her practice consists in 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, their techniques and processes, 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.
