Sophie Iremonger:

Born 1983 Dublin Ireland, educated at the national college of art and design, Sophie Iremonger graduated in 2008 with a BA in Painting. She has lived in Berlin for the last ten years developing a strong studio practice and has exhibited extensively in Europe and America. She makes paintings, books, and illustrations thematically concerned with wastelands and the junctures between human and non-human worlds. Other themes include food and deconstructing baroque art. Her paintings utilize print, collage, and acrylics. She also illustrates and writes books.

Her work explores power, evolution, nature, and landscape. The artist uses a variety of mediums to articulate her thoughts and feelings, including paint, drawing, and collage.
Sophie studied at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and has since exhibited her work internationally, with recent shows in both London and New York.
Describes self as: ’Maid of all works for efficient processing of junk, external and internal, through line and colour’
More succinctly described as mixed media congealer of compositions dealing with Power, Evolution, Sex, Death, Englishness, Puddings, Nature, Prehistory, Witches, Trees, Menial labour, Stately homes.
Emphasis on strong drawing skills collaged with layers of textures and super-natural hues.
The thread that unites all this is a struggle to illuminate uncomfortable mental furniture and rearrange it.
You still bark your shins against the corners, but at least it’s in ‘pretty colours’, and you can see it from ‘a different angle’.
