Biography
Sophie Smallhorn’s work explores the relationships between colour, volume and proportion through various mediums that include sculpture, print and large scale site-specific installations. Known for the strong use of colour within her work, probably her biggest project to date is her involvement in the creation of the 2012 London Olympic Stadium where she was commissioned to put together the changing spectrum of colours for the fabric wrap that runs around the outside of the building. Inspired by the colours of the Olympic rings and the flags of the 204 countries participating, Sophie worked with architects and designers to transform the monochrome structure into a dynamic object that was seen by the world in the summer of 2012.

Recommended Reading
Liberating herself from the boundaries of colour theorists, Sophie Smallhorn has embarked on a journey to freely explore the relationship between colours. New harmonic chronicles are created via colourful sculptural works, formed by round cylinders, triangular blocks and square pegs - and works on paper depicting reconstructed colour wheels or patterns of geometrical shaped hues. All in a pursuit to investigate colour through form and volume. It is a continuous and life-long study for Smallhorn, and one that will never conclude. Colour Wheel 5 and Colour Wheel 6 are two screenprint editions from her series of ‘Colour Wheels’; an untraditional inquiry into the interaction between colour and simultaneous contrast.
