Artist Biography

Sophia is a multidisciplinary artist. She uses her body in her work to explore female self-objectification, asking the question is the visual objectification of the female body inherently patriarchal?She also intentionally falsifies moments of spiritual revelation to create the sensation of 'faith not found'.

Since graduating with First Class Honours in 2007 at the Victoria College of the Arts in Melbourne, Sophia has had several solo exhibitions including Dy Dykrenore, which featured a large scale ice sculpture with an imbedded kangaroo spine, and Delivered [internalising the pervert/or re-building the body psyche] where she hung for several hours covered in black glitter.

Sophia was selected by Art Collector Magazine as one of Australia's 50 most collectable artists. She has exhibited across Australia and internationally. Last year she was a recipient of the Northern Centre for Contemporary Art international project. This year she will complete a six month residency in New York at Residency Unlimited. Her preliminary research includes travelling to the Polygamous Mormon community of Hildale, and meeting with pornography actors in Los Angeles.
