Sophie Gralton

Sophie Gralton

Sophie Gralton lives in Sydney. Her artwork harks back to her childhood memories of living in rural Victoria.
Sophie Gralton’s genre paintings are loosely based on 17th Century Dutch portaits of children painted at that time. She uses Australian models, often her own children and they are frequently wearing garments that were hers as a child. The device of cropping the eyes enables the subject to represent ‘everychild’ and avoids an oversentimentality which can sometimes be difficult to steer away from when children and animals are concerned. It is also becoming her trademark and one which she has become well recognised for in the eastern states, having had sell out shows for several years there now.
