Sofia A Chu - learning + creating

Sofia A. Chu is a Virginia based artist with a current focus in New Media practice in Animation and Video (though she regularly creates in all mediums). Sofia studies in the School of Visual Arts at Virginia Tech as a Creative Technologies major and is the intern at Virginia Tech’s Perspective Gallery.  Sofia is from Luray, Virginia where she has been saturated in country life and cave dwelling. 

“These works I've made over the past couple months in isolation, have become a part of a meditative balance I now crave every day.  Though I do regularly paint and illustrate I have taken this time at home as an opportunity to really dedicate some time to working on each individual piece. I think all of these pieces are a self-portraiture in a way.”

Media used in these pieces are watercolor for the less realistic pieces and gouache for the opaque pieces.
