Lives and works in Sydney
Sophie Clague is a Sydney based Australian artist working primarily in sculpture and installation. Her work deals with the intersections of drawing and sculpture, figuration and abstraction, inert and organic forms. She remains committed to reimagining post-industrial landscapes and detritus into new creative spaces and forms, allowing the audience to imagine alternate futures and possibilities.
Clague holds an MFA from the University of Sydney, and a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from the University of New South Wales. Recently announced the winner of the Tom Bass Figurative Sculpture Prize for 2018, she has exhibited widely, most recently at Alaska Projects and Palmer Art Projects. In early 2017 she undertook a residency at the Frans Maser-eel Centrum in Belgium, which was supported by the Dyason Bequest from the Art Gallery of New South Wales. In 2016 she exhibited in Sculpture by the Sea (Bondi, Australia) and was awarded one of three Clitheroe Foundation Scholarships for emerging artists.
