About

The body of work in Sophie Treppendahl’s Homebody was inspired by her experience of the last two years. After having her life confined indoors, Treppendahl found she had fallen in love with being at home.

Homebody will run concurrently with SPOOLS, a solo exhibition in our side gallery with Oakland-based artist Nimah Gobir. The exhibitions will run through June 18, 2022.

SF/Arts Curator Insight

Brightly colored wallpaper, a blanket made of crochet granny squares, post-dinner party mess, a bathroom sink cluttered with personal care products, sunlight bathing the uncleared breakfast dishes, a pile of open art books -- the stuff of life. Sophie Treppendahl's paintings capture the colorful existence of a shut-in trapped by the pandemic who has decided to focus on all that remains after so much has been stripped away. Her work pairs seamlessly with Nimah Gobir's portraits, which have the snapshot feel of vivid memory. A couple reclining on an overstuffed sofa. Grandma proudly holding up a new baby. A girl in plaid school uniform smiling shyly. A man peacefully soaking in life with eyes closed.
