Werkhalle Wiesenburg Berlin -Sophia Schama

KNALLHART Sophia Schama

The oil paintings of Sophia Schama shown in the Werkhalle Wiesenburg Berlin in April deal with nature and abstraction and are all the results of lengthy processes, rendering her work multi-layered and complex.
The intensity of her presence and sharpness in the marks and brush-strokes is undeniable. Everything in these paintings is considered, looked at and felt, yet her precision leaves room for happy accidents.
These masterful paintings stand firmly in the tradition of modernistic painting but are never rigid or fearful, never lack curiosity for the unknown or surprising – they are like nature itself, both bold and sensitive, familiar yet strangely mysterious.
Thomas Bo Henriksson

Sophia Schama lives and works in Berlin and was born 1966 in Sofia, Bulgaria. She studied painting at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Dresden, and has been a member of the Sächsischen Akademie Der Künste since 2013.
