the red dream.

Sophie Bass, Bristol based illustrator. Contact me here for commissions or queries - sophbass@googlemail.com

My work focuses primarily on human nature. I am interested in our place in the universe, sex, death, birth, our sensual relationship with the natural world we inhabit, all things disgusting and exciting, music, masquerade, chaos, dreams and nightmares. My work is influenced by many different cultures and I seek to produce highly decorative work whilst still remaining meaningful.

BEGINNING MIDDLE END - GEB AND NUT
For this ‘Valentines special’ bme edition I wanted to celebrate the creative powers of love and sex, told through the Ancient Egyptian characters Geb and Nut. Geb was the God of the earth, and his sister Nut was the Goddess of the sky. Geb and Nut longed to embrace each other, but the distance was too great. In my illustration (i try to forget they’re brother and sister…) they make love, and afterwards the fertile earth is full of lush woodland and the sky is pregnant with stars, planets and rain.
