Sophie Coryndon, Book of Flowers, UK, 2017
Book of Flowers, a large diptych, draws inspiration from sixteenth-century tapestries and intricate goldwork embroidery. The magnificent work is adorned with hand-tooled flowers that are cast and gilded before being arranged on a polished ivory gesso background.
Todd Merrill Studio began representing UK artist Sophie Coryndon in 2016. Imaginative and innovative, Coryndon has forged a successful career of combining traditional craftsmanship and specialist finishing techniques in a fine art realm. Often material and process driven, employing multiple disciplines including bronze casting, painting, embroidery, and sculpture, her work has found a large audience with collectors and designers worldwide.
Coryndon spent her formative years working alongside her father at the legendary Coryndon Cabinet Makers in England. Coryndon’s work, inspired by elements of the natural world, is rooted in historical aesthetics. Coryndon especially draws inspiration from the influential the 18th century Neoclassical designer and architect, Robert Adams who was described in his obituary as, “a genius in elegant ornament.” The Adams style incorporated elements of classical Roman design alongside Greek, Byzantine and Baroque styles.
As Coryndon works on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
