Sophie Gralton Limited Edition Giclees – available at Berkeley Editions
Sophie Gralton's portraits evoke a sense of childhood nostalgia with overtones of a contemporary Australian sensibility.
“In today’s era of sleek minimalism, designer kitchens and crisply sterile modernism, I mourn for a time when children could remember what it was like to have milk bottles with foil tops, a baker that delivered to your home and the postie rode a bike. In my own hildhood in the country our milk was delivered by horse and cart. That era has gone – and I want to capture now the childhood that my own children are experiencing by incorporating in my artwork, pieces of memorabilia of this current generation.” Sophie Gralton
Surrounded by and immersed in her collection of once loved treasures, Gralton boldly portrays and mirrors her world in a poignant and poetic manner. Her autobiographical style self-portraits are loaded with imagery of childhood memories and times gone by.
Of her artworks Gralton says "The faces of the children in my paintings are obscured as it is not the intention for them to be conventional portraits but rather fleeting impressions of youth and childhood memory, rather than of the individual themselves."
