The images of Sofie van Gils (1991, Eindhoven) are often created by chance. Driven from a great fascination for the human body, she is engaged in the decomposition and experimentation with found images and materials related to this subject.
During a search for aesthetics and equilibrium, the starting point is often a print of her own body. Due to the earthly colors used, there is a rest in the images making them very light for the eye.
Sofie van Gils works with different mediums, making her much different in her work. It mainly works with latex and wax, but gypsum, polyurethane and oil paint are also regularly seen.
In summary, her work is often very intimate and challenges the audience to come closer.
