Sophie Ryder (b.1963) Ladyhare with Dog Signed (to margin) Etching with aquatint 83.5 x 63.5cm Unframed Horatio's Garden will receive 100% of the hammer price on this lot. Sophie Ryder was born in London, England, in 1963. Sophie studied Combined Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts 1981-84, where, while obtaining her diploma in painting, she was encouraged by Sir Hugh Casson, the then director of the Royal Academy, to develop her sculpture.​ Ryder's world is one of mystical creatures, animals and hybrid beings made from sawdust, wet plaster, old machine parts and toys, weld joins and angle grinders, wire, torn scraps of paper and charcoal sticks. Sophie famously developed the Lady Hare as a counterpart to Ancient Greek mythology's Minotaur. Working 'big' is a very significant feature of Sophie's work, and she enjoys rising to the constructional and creative challenges which flows from this aspiration.
