b. 1967, Yorkshire, UK. Lives and works in London, UK and New York, USA
Hopton works across photography, collage, printmaking, sculpture and textile, often combining these within one work. Most recently, she has applied her unique aesthetic to wallpaper, fabric and rugs. Classical themes of still life, self-portraits and studies of flowers are consistent threads, woven through explorations into abstraction and pattern. Like her heroes of the Wiener Werkstaette and the Arts and Crafts movement, Hopton’s heart lies in creativity with no boundaries; the melding of art and life.
Hopton’s work is housed in several permanent collections including Tate and the Arts Council collection. Public commissions can be seen at the Home Office and Royal London Hospital.
