"Sophie Milner's paintings hold a place between abstraction and figuration, drawing the viewer in to a painterly plane evoking the botanical, human or anamorphic forms. Coaxed out to play in spaces true to neither life nor memory, they portray an inner landscape... one which comes from a deep questioning and exploration of the psychodramas that paint the self both sore and sacred."
