Life has its way of shaping us, growing us and gracing us. Few know the depth of despair that has blessed us in becoming the beautiful beings we are today. To be human is to live, love, nurture and blossom.”
Blood, Bone, Heart and Tears is Sophie Lewis-Smith’s first ever solo exhibition and is a collection of works showcasing her on going journey through life.
Jewellery artist on The Hobbit and previous Tutor at The Learning Connexion in Wellington, Sophie has moved to warmer climates and welcomes those in the Waikato and further a field to come and marvel at her latest creations with a night of celebration on Saturday 3rd of December.
An exhibition which honours the process of stepping into the new and shedding layers of the past. Blood, Bone, Heart and Tears promises to portray the inner dance of growth, and the beautiful blossoming of an internal world where hope, faith and love have been restored. It celebrates the process of growing new wings, delighting in the playground of the imagination while acknowledging where one has been in order to fully embrace where one is presently.
After completing a year of a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Therapy in 2015, and delving deep into her internal Pandora’s box, Sophie chose 2016 as a year to relish in her creativity once again and create the story pieces that she is renowned for.
This current exhibition is her latest curtain draw, running from Saturday 3rd to Wednesday 21st of December, 10am – 5pm daily.
Opening night, Saturday 3rd December, Studio Gallery
