Ryder's world is one of mystical creatures, animals and hybrid beings made from sawdust, wet plaster, old machine parts and toys, weld joins and angle grinders, wire, torn scraps of paper and charcoal sticks. In this early 1989 piece Sophie Ryder depicts the goat, seeped in its mythological iconography it becomes a bold, illustrative and dark figure in this large scale print. Working 'big' is a very significant feature of Sophie's work, and she enjoys rising to the constructional and creative challenges which flows from this aspiration.

She studied Combined Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts where, while obtaining her diploma in painting, she was encouraged by fellow artist to develop her sculpture. Inspired by Picasso, Goya and Henry Moore, she famously developed the Lady Hare as a counterpart to Ancient Greek mythology's Minotaur. Sophie Ryder's world is one of mystical creatures, animals and hybrid beings made from sawdust, wet plaster, old machine parts and toys, weld joins and angle grinders, wire 'pancakes', torn scraps of paper, charcoal sticks and acid baths. Working 'big' is a very significant feature of her work, and she enjoys rising to the constructional and creative challenges which flow from this aspiration. It's because of this she has to have a very disciplined approach to her work. To discuss works by Sophie Ryder please contact deborah@wychwoodart.com, or call 07799 535765.
