SOPHIE SMALLHORN | INVESTING IN ART
An artist and colourist, Sophie Smallhorn’s practice encompasses a broad spectrum of private, public and commercial commissions. Her work explores the relationships between colour, volume and proportion across prints, sculpture and site specific installations. Sophie’s kaleidoscopic odyssey began at the University of Brighton (1991-1994), where she studied Furniture and Ceramics.
 
While making furniture she became interested in the colourful off-cuts, experimented with wall-mounted sculpture and the rest, as they say, is history. Widely exhibited internationally, her work has also featured consistently in the prestigious Royal Academy Summer Shows in London.
In 2014 and new to Eyestorm, Sophie Smallhorn ended up being a very popular artist and most widely shown female newcomer of that year. With impressively good sales across three continents, Asia, Europe and the United States, her Colour Wheel 5 was a very successful debut print edition.
The following year trumped even that, with more sales of the work than by any other abstract print artist. Following principles of pigment interplay and careful arrangement, Colour Wheel 5 saw Smallhorn deliberate on shades and the positioning of different colours to result in a composition that’s also become her most popular print to date.

The wheel has been a constant theme in Smallhorn’s work, its continuous form echoing her ongoing exploration of hue, saturation and symmetry. Debuting in London, Battersea, in spring 2015, Colour Wheel 6 instantly resonated with UK-based collectors and a 1/3 of the edition went on to sell by the end of the year. As the ‘masculine’ counterpart to the previous print, this one offers the opportunity for collectors of Colour Wheel 5 to form a pair should they wish to, and invest in something by an artist showing development as well as continuity. The fact that this new print came in quick succession to the previous, is down to the successful reception of Smallhorn’s work, albeit it proves overall to have not quite the same attraction for collectors who seem to gravitate more towards the popping colours of yellow and fuchsia in Colour Wheel 5. However, with colour being a ‘bottomless pit of possibilities’ for the artist, Colour Wheel 6’s more muted reception is just another interesting observation on colour’s chromatic relationship with itself.

Smallhorn has been described as ‘a colour alchemist’ by Building Design Magazine, and Layer 1 and Layer 2 from 2016 uphold the title most clearly. They both indeed are products of a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation and combinations of colour. Mixing, playing and taking risks with colour and negative space, the works are both layered but at the same time, sharp. Although maintained in a formal square, the overall compositions are anything but. Their A-symmetry is an unusual departure from Smallhorn’s otherwise clear-cut formations. The overlapping colours create entirely new hues that are influenced not only by the colour that run through them, but the colours that run alongside them. Such unexpected colour is incredibly beautiful and these prints have been well received equal measure in London and New York.

Awards and accolades also bolster the value of Sophie Smallhorn’s work. The global exposure that her commission for the London 2012 Olympic Games committee gave her, really launched her into the public eye as well as that of the art world. Her coloured banners wrapped around the entire Olympic stadium and may have even inspired the success of her Colour Wheel series, for their parallels with the Olympic rings. Four works that definitely relate to the 2012 Games, are a set of screenprints based on the coloured panels she devised for the Olympics; Pale, Yellow, Navy and Wine. The pieces from 2013 are available via Eyestorm and are amongst those pieces sought after by corporate and interior-design collectors at international art fairs.

The sales history of her print editions shows this artist’s terrific commercial value in spite of her theoretically-motivated ideas. It’s been very refreshing to have worked with an established artist who has such a flawless approach to colour and design. Smallhorn’s universal colour language is timeless, and she has been recognized for technique, worldwide. Her public commissions include: Collaboration with architects to design the colour spectrum for the 2012 Olympic Games in London; Completion of Glass Canopy commission for Land Securities. Victoria, London (2013); Colour Bands, Vinyl Installation at Canary Wharf (2006); and Rochester Row public Art commission for Westminster Council (2005).
