WHITE NOISE @ VINYL OUTCRY

ARTIST:  SOPHIE GRAY VICTORIA GRAY

In creating 'White Noise', Sophie intended to accumulate her feelings about the work across the entire #VinylOutcry exhibition; her challenge was to assemble a visual depiction of sound within a show centred around a collaboration of various different visual and audio artists.

 

As an autistic person, Sophie struggles with noise throughout her daily life, and 'White Noise' was made with the pain of an autistic meltdown in mind; confusion and overwhelming emotion coming together to form a mass of uncertainty.

Sophie May Victoria Gray is a disabled artist from South Shields who has spent the last 10 years working with polymer clay; from small charms being made in her bedroom, to the larger pieces she makes now. After a difficult period of time and losing the use of her hands she went through physiotherapy in order to return to her happy place of art.

 

"I have had an absolute blast working on this project," says Sophie. "Working with Jay, Stephanie, and Dima especially was absolutely incredible. The amount of energy we brought to each other was electric. This was my first time ever showing in an exhibition, and it will definitely not be my last. I felt so inspired by absolutely everything going on, and the sharing of ideas made it so I felt compelled to make a new piece for the show."
