Sophie Gogl was born in 1992 in Kitzbühel, Austria, and studied painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna with Professor Judith Eisler, where she graduated in 2017. Most of her imagery she finds on the internet. Motifs from media, films or advertising are transformed to investigate ways in which painting can shape narratives in an infinite world of images. More than in the images themselves, Sophie Gogl is looking into the mechanisms of their appearance and disappearance in the data stream. Time and again her practice also includes installation and combinations of various media. Gogl’s first solo shows brought her to the Museum of Applied Art in Vienna (2020) and the Galerie der Stadt Schwaz (2020) and a group show at Kunsthalle Bern (2020). In 2021 she will be part of the Vienna Biennale and will have her first solo show with KOW during Berlin Gallery Weekend.
