Sophie Larriemore is Drinking, Walking, Washing

“I paint dogs, but these are not dog paintings per se; I see them more as a way to explore texture, form and colour relationships I find interesting. Dogs have been in my work for some time. I liked that it was, like a traditional nude, a taboo subject (too frivolous or retrograde to pursue seriously) and thought it a good starting point. Over time the forms have become more generic, they have become elements I use to make compositions which interest me. Having a young daughter and living in a city I’ve been spending a lot of time in playgrounds. Some of these elements have naturally found their way into the newest work. Another artist recently commented that the work was “generous”. That is a good thing to keep working for in a painting.” Sophie Larrimore, 2017
