Sofia Shu, “Equilibrium”
“These meticulously harmonized geometric paintings and tapestries by Sofia Shu strive to inspire a sensation of balance and serenity within the viewer,” read a press release. “As the eye travels along their labyrinthine curves, precise lines, and soft gradients, her works manifest a meditative dimension that encourages a calm and contemplative state. While a work may begin with a sketch, she allows the composition to develop intuitively until it has achieved a satisfying equilibrium. The resulting works feel complete and entirely at peace, with a pleasing rhythm and no element out of place.”
