The\n Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825 is proud to\n present a solo exhibition by artist Sophia Allison featuring\n mixed-media sculpture and installations.

\n

Sophia's\n abstract soft-sculptural sewn works are created from artificial\,\n humble\, recycled\, common materials. Used coffee filters\, discarded\n consumer packaging\, fabric scraps\, and bits of cardboard are torn\,\n ripped\, cut\, collaged\n and then machine sewn together in ways that echo forms in natural\n objects. The\n sewing machine acts as a drawing and binding instrument and the\n seams\, edges and threads are left exposed and rough. < span style="font-family: Arial\,sans-serif\; font-size: small\;">In\n a work titled "Rootlimb\," the rev erse side of the product\n packaging -the grey and brown card board- is exposed\, imitating\n bark-like color. The brightl y colored packaging normally on\n prominent retail display is only visible from the interior of the\n work. Her\n sculptures act as weird amorphous objects or bits of landscape that\n intera ct with each other and border the line between beautiful and\n absurd.
