Release is Sophie Robertson's companion piece to Rage. Far from howling in rage, Release depicts Robertson’s muse posing serenely, seemingly nude except for the many layered pearl necklace adorning her décolletage. Far more passive than her counterpart in Rage, Robertson’s subject appears to accept her role simply as a beautiful object of desire.
Sophie Robertson was born in London, England, and lives in Sydney, Australia.
