Sofia Sacomani

2018 QEST Scholar - Printmaking

University of Buenos Aires Design graduate Sofia is a visual artist based in London. Her practice combines analogue photography with printmaking processes such as screenprinting and transfer to deconstruct and create alternative images.

During the final year of her MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts, with the fees funded by a QEST Scholarship, Sofia developed this innovative, signature technique further: mixing media and producing her own negatives, then experimenting with exposing them onto different surfaces in the darkroom to reveal new interpretations.

Her work was selected for the Clifford Chance 2019 Printmaking Postgraduate exhibition.

What is initially fixed in time — the objective photograph — transforms into something more abstract and dynamic. Using traditional techniques in a contemporary way, I hope to attract other artists to this interplay between physical and digital imagemaking.
