Flower crowns have found their way in my art practice in 2018. They are used to mark all the important moments in life, family reunions over Christmas, weddings, or to celebrate those who have departed. Children make flower crowns off daisies. For Incomprehensible Structure, I draw from a childhood memory, learning how to make such crowns with my friend. Though this time, instead of daisies, I have used golden wattle.

Born in France, Sofie Dieu’s first encounter with art was through church. With a penchant for ritual and spirituality, the artist is best known for her fragile, sombre, and sometimes violent ink paintings and textile works.

 

Poetic and humanist, her practice draws on her journeys to China and Australia. She explores how identity and memory fluctuate according to their immediate environment. Landscapes, people, secrecy, healing, and the dichotomy between light and darkness are some of her recurring themes.

  

Multi-art prizes and award finalist, her work was included in the Sydney North Art Prize, Waterhouse Natural Science prize and the Contemporary Art Award amongst others. In 2016, she worked on the Camperdown Cemetery installation for Sydney Biennale. In 2017, her work will be shown during Vivid and Mental Health Month in Sydney.
