In her drawings Sonja Gangl takes the still life into the 21st century by linking our whole consumer culture with the motif of the memento mori. From worshipping the "beautiful things" in nature it is only a small step to worshipping the "beautiful things" in culture. Just as the still life of earlier epochs commemorated the transience of all things mundane, Sonja Gangl's drawings remind us of the transience of all man made products – and in their technique of representing the way the old masters did, the drawings simultaneously celebrate art's pretension to be immortal.
