Biography from Mike Weiss Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Sofi Zezmer (1959-)

Sculptor, painter and installation artist Sofi Zezmer was born in 1959 in Lodz, Poland, educated in the United States and lives in Wiesbaden, Germany since 1995.  She mainly uses brightly colored, familiar plastic and metal objects, fitting them together into patterns that often seem inspired  by "biotechnology, space travel, the omnipresent accumulation of mass-produced objects and the effects of the information overload." (NY Arts, April 2007).
