Portrait of Sofia Mitsola, 2023.

LONDON.- Galerie Eva Presenhuber has announced the representation of London-based Greek artist Sofia Mitsola, alongside Pilar Corrias, London. Sofia Mitsola works primarily with painting to examine the female body. By looking at figures in ancient Egyptian and Greek sculpture, Japanese animation, and pornography, she composes her own mythological characters and places them in geometrical, stage-like compositions. These are painted in vibrant colors and are layered with washes and impasto. Her paintings often feature bare, larger-than-life characters who address the viewer with their direct gaze and invite them to look back. Through this act, Mitsola forms dynamic relationships between the painting and the viewer to establish new hierarchies and play with ideas of voyeurism, power, and control.

I have been following Sofia Mitsola's work with great pleasure over the past few years and I am delighted that she has decided to join our gallery. In her paintings, she invites us into her otherworldly universe, which explores and at the same time heightens our view of female subjectivity and sexuality, mythology and power. Being Greek, she represents the art scene of a country with which I have a long-standing personal relationship. I look forward to seeing how Sofia's practice develops, as we will see her work as part of a group exhibition in Seoul and a solo show in Zurich later this year. – Eva Presenhuber

In February 2022, Galerie Eva Presenhuber presented Sofia Mitsola's paintings in a group exhibition at Maag Areal, Zurich, and in June 2022 in a group exhibition at Waldmannstrasse, Zurich. In November 2022, the gallery presented her works at Art Basel Miami Beach and in January 2023 at artgenève, Geneva. During Frieze Seoul in September 2023, paintings by Mitsola will be included in a group show at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, hosted by Taxa Seoul. In November 2023, a large solo exhibition will be presented at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Waldmannstrasse, Zurich.

Sofia Mitsola was born in 1992 in Thessaloniki, GR, and lives and works in London, UK. In 2018, she received her MFA in painting from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, UK.
