I discovered the work of Despo Sophocleous when I visited the website of my Montreal gallery, Galerie Noel Guyomarc'h a few days ago. I was drawn to the architectural look of the work and the linkage systems that connect element to element. The articulated forms remind me of construction sites, industrial landscapes, and abandoned buildings on the verge of falling over. Some feel like I are looking at them from the ground while others feel like an aerial view. I am also interested in her subtle details like rivets and those wonderful little spaces in between the wooden and copper pieces.
Thanks for reading.
