Maker Faire Delft 2023

Sophia Gunkel Art

Home: Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

Welcome to the mesmerising world of Sophia Gunkel; an abstract artist who explores the intersection between her dreams and reality. Sophia is interested in exploring the blurry boundary between the conscious and subconscious being; to give shape to the intangible through her art. Experimenting with different mediums her abstract works are snapshots of her dream world, and are created with fluidity and intuition. Each new piece comes to life through layers of paint, and with each layer light, structure, and depth of colour are considered. Much like a dream, the painting takes its own shape and is only done once the artist feels that the reminiscence of the dream is captured. If you are spending time with her work, Sophia invites you to dream with her. She aims for the experience to be transportive: let your mind wander and associate. There might be things that you recognise and other parts that remain elusive or open-ended; memories or sensations that cannot be expressed with words.
