Sofie Bird Møller


Sofie Bird Møller (b. 1974) lives and works in Berlin.

The Danish artist Sofie Bird Møller is known for her work with fashion advertisements. The advertisements are torn out from well-known fashion magazines and with precision but also decided violence Sofie Bird Møller has painted over the models in the advertisements so they appear as abstract forms and so the painted shapes partly obscure what lies underneath. Anthropomorphic figures are suggested by thick, lush brushstrokes that have been laid over models striking elegant poses. The texture and viscosity of the paint are suggestive of naked flesh, even muscle tissue, meat.
