Consequences of Love and Death

by Sophie Rae

Born and raised in the Southwest, I often times paint barefoot with too much coffee in my system, trying to capture what happens when we die, what the color of love is, or if animals think like we do.

I prefer the self deprecating education I receive showing up to my canvas day in and day out ready to create and learn from my mistakes and my successes.

My current work reflects my current passions and obsessions: the consequences of love and death, religion and human anatomy, animals and emotion, and an overall attempt to make sense of humanity and what connects us all as human beings.

Throughout most of my work, and uniting these conversations, is the skull.

I use skulls as a focal point in my work, in order to present commonalities between humans and animals, discuss our present and our future, and as a symbol of life and of human kind.
