Strathnairn Arts

Sophia Childs is based in Canberra (Ngunnawal Country). Her practice involves using discarded clothes, towels, and textile scraps, which she cuts up and sews together.

Sophia Childs talks to Barbie about Sutured Surfaces

These become lively surfaces upon which she builds with layers of acrylic paint, dropped, scraped, pressed and brushed on.

Childs completed her painting honours in 2023 at the ANU and this collection comes from that year.
