Galerie Eva Presenhuber is proud to announce the representation of London-based Greek artist Sofia Mitsola, alongside Pilar Corrias, London. 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.
