Biography

Sophie Ruigrok is an artist and writer from London, England. Her drawings aim to tell fragments of stories and imply a wider world that exists beyond the edges of the page. Interested in themes of nostalgia, longing and individuals’ personal histories, Sophie often works from old photos she finds in junk shops or screenshots of strangers’ home videos on the internet. By combining her autobiographical experiences and drawings with archival material, she hopes to present time as cyclical, repeating and, sometimes, suffocating.
