Sophie Reinhold’s practice is rooted in her own understanding of material, and dedication to the medium of painting. Often shaping her canvases in sections, Rheinhold applies marble powder to her surfaces, lending them an iridescent sheen. Running beneath these are Reinhold’s meditations on diverse imagery that range from Greek Mythology, which Reinhold gravitates towards for its tenuous relationship with morality, to icons and slogans from her upbringing in East Berlin.

Sophie Reinhold  (*1981, lives and works in Berlin) studied at the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin from 2008 to 2011, at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2010 and Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig from 2005 to 2008.
