Sophia Hatzikos is a Greek-American from Portland, Oregon and is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Art at Washington University in St. Louis. She received her BA from Wheaton College in Massachusetts with a double major in Visual Art and Economics.
Sophia is driven by a deep concern for the natural environment and an interest in flows of materials. Her works in sculpture, installation, video, and site-specific work all start from this concern. She uses the conditions of site and space – where she is at each moment - to spur her projects, always with an eye for the impacts of human intervention and human control on the landscape.
