Sophia Narrett
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is ultimately about love. I try to honestly depict my fantasies, desires and fears in a way that does justice to my feelings, while also pursuing an awareness of the social implications of images. Each piece begins as a narrative premise shaped by my experiences or thoughts. I then illustrate these stories by embroidering from collages built with source images gathered on the internet, iphone photos Iíve taken, and screenshots from movies or tv. The original context of the images provides a way to complicate the initial narrative and to connect to larger social situations. The commitment it takes to render images in thread becomes a way to imbue the object itself with the emotional content of the story. I want to depict confusing interactions between people, especially those that let imagination and desire blur reality and involve some kind of roleplay. Iím interested in the ways that adults play, whether their games are consensual or manipulative, and the emotional results of escapism.
