Sophie Abbott is an artist working with constructed narratives, universal emotion and storytelling. 


Abbott's project “Do you still love me darling?” is a project referencing memory, time, relationships and the re-appropriation of imagery. Using ‘found’ letters containing years of dialogue between a young couple living in the time of the Cold war, the narrative explores elements of romantic love, possession and insecurity. Places in which the couple visited become visual metaphors for the turbulent and emotional feelings experienced during their relationship. Feelings of loss, intense love, desire and despair are demonstrated, paired with archival documents gathered from a series of locations. Whether a flower from the ladies garden, or decaying images found at an RAF site in Germany, the project aims to discuss themes of memory, loss and the inevitability of present turning into past.
