Sophie Larrimore, Untitled, 2017, Marker and watercolor on paper, 11 x 8.5 in

Sophie Larrimore

Sophie Larrimore concentrates her imagery on a fascinating alternation between figuration and abstraction. In her recent body of work, she combines a smart interplay between human beings and dogs as geometric shapes, which play off one another. In Untitled, 2017, for example the main attention is concentrated on two figures, a crouching human and dog in an abstracted expression of petting. Done in dreamy, fuzzy, pastel watercolors, the half-naked body showing only touching hands, feet and female breasts, is subdued becoming almost domestic. Smoothly curving forms and geometries of line and shape provide a Matisse or Leger sensibility while her use of tiny dots is fauvism or pointillistic in style. Larrimore lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
