Sophie Reinhold (born 1981 in East Berlin) lives and works in Berlin. She studied painting at the Hochschule für Graphik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, and at the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna. She responds in her typically humorous and satirical manner to her surroundings, creating subversive narratives of historical, social and moral themes. Reinhold's canvases feature sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract compositions, and by mixing marble powder into paint and sanding or cutting the canvas, she questions the boundaries of painting. Sculptural objects that are reminiscent of furniture subtly hint at the domestic, connecting the public with the private.

Bom Dia Boa Tarde Boa Noite
Kein Witz, No Joke combines paintings and objects by Sophie Reinhold with the "Typewritings" of Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt. As different as the artists may be, their works share a manic perseverance, precision, and subversive humor.
