ABOUT THE WORK
Sofia Plater’s primary inspiration comes from witnessing the architecture of raw nature, the freeforming textures and structures that exist and grow in the environment. She strives to imitate nature by referencing the organic systems and processes through which things actually grow. Plater works with construction materials to create unexpected explorations of aesthetic possibilities, that evoke the conflict between natural and man-made architectures. By employing an element of the hidden, Sofia’s work aims to entice viewers to closely investigate in order to decipher the different material components within.
