Sophia Narrett

Sophia Narrett, Stuck [detail]

Sophia Narrett began as a painter before switching to embriodery, a medium that may seem at odds with her current subject matter, suburban people using roleplay to spice up their sex lives (or, as the artist put it, “a group of people trying to find love, self understanding, and fun through adult games.”) Luckily, her collage-like pieces are complicated, and can’t simply be reduced to a feminist appropriation of a women’s medium. Narrett’s somewhat explicit tableaux aren’t easy to decipher; what can it mean that a naked man is peeping through the window of a bank while a sad but muscular woman does yoga with her breasts exposed?
