Art with a difference
What makes something a work of art? It's a question that many have asked for thousands of years. It isn't a question that can be answered simply and I truly believe this is because it comes down to emotion and the artist's ability to showcase this throughout their work. It is a way of expressing oneself that sometimes maybe only the artist themselves can understand.

If anyone understands the complexity of art it is Sophie Downey, an Adelaide artist/saxophonist/game changer. Bored with the humdrum view that art must be only viewed in a gallery, Sophie set out for a greater challenge by combining her passion of art and music.

Coined a "performance portrait" by the artist herself, Sophie provides a new experience of painting someone live, in front of an audience, to music whilst playing saxophone. She aims to capture more of the experience of live performance, to bring together the aural and visual worlds.

If you are interested in viewing some of Sophie's work, Two sisters Wine Bar will be hosting a solo exhibition on Thursday 5 May at 6 pm. Furthermore, one of Sophie's paintings will be displayed at the Hughes Community Centre on Friday May 6th and is a finalist in the Unley Art Prize.

Sophie's passion for art radiates throughout her personality, which is only further demonstrated throughout her art. If you're after something different be sure to check it out.
