About the artist

In Sophie Heinrich’s paintings there is a radical concentration on the linear. Every single setting, every stroke, every line, every surface is pointed. For she is not only interested in the precise composition within a painting, but also in the reference of individual elements to other paintings. Thus, time and again there are tableaus that are assembled from two or even four large canvases to form one picture.


Sophie Heinrich completed her studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 2017. She is a master student of Elizabeth Peyton. Before joining Peyton’s class in 2015, she studied with Tal R from 2012 to 2014 and with Stefan Kürten and Enrico David from 2014 to 2015. Her work has already been exhibited in Düsseldorf, Cologne, Berlin and Amsterdam and Mallorca.
