Sophie Plimpton Portrait

SOPHIE PLIMPTON

Sophie Plimpton was born in Boston and currently lives and works in New York. She studied Creative Writing at Bennington, Fine Arts at Parsons Paris, Art History and French at NYU, and Psychology at the New School where she received her BS. She danced with Boston Ballet from 1993-2002, and lived in Paris for many years. Plimpton’s work explores poetry and rhythm through mixed media collage. She imbues her work with photographic images collected from many sources including the Internet, old photos, vintage and new magazines, and her current photography. Plimpton creates strong gestures and fragmented forms, and her work is influenced by the history of Collage and Dance.  She interweaves both old and modern art references with a variety of mediums including oil paint, ink, and mixed media.

Plimpton has shown widely in New York, Boston and Mexico City.
