Sophie Ko’s Temporal Geographies incarnate the idea of an artwork eternally suspended between creation and destruction, the image is generated and re-generated over and over again through a slow and relentless collapse of the material/matter. Made of thick blocks of pure pigment, these works present themselves as both unanimated abstractions and dynamic entities subject to a physical transformation over time. Emerging from a formal and conceptual negotiation between painting and sculpture, Sophie Ko’s works define/indicate a metaphor of the transience and mutability of the subject. The title of the works recalls a landscape, the image of a geological stratification defined by its own temporality.
