Sophie Klerk is a Danish collage artist. She has previously lived and worked in the Netherlands, England, Mexico and most recently in New Zealand, all part of shaping her unique, minimalist and expressive style. It is curiosity and challenge of the unknown that inspire Sophie to explore the interaction between different papers, colours, shades and textures, thread, paint and photos. The composed and stitched together collages often refer to the prior use of the materials. She works very intuitively and build up stories - chaos turns into order, wholeness and new contexts. Her work is held in private collections worldwide, and she undertakes collaborations and commissions on request.

I cherish the faded, old and broken and I am naturally drawn to more subtle colours and tones which might have something to do with my Nordic background.
