Gogl transforms material from stock image services and the internet into skillful and humorous paintings and objects where she twists cropping, dimension and context. An image of Anna Sorokin circulating in the gossip press (the New York scammer who was arrested for traveling on others expense; posted up in luxury hotels) has for example become a vague icon or anti-hero in Gogl's art.
In a German-ish tradition following painters like Merlin Carpenter or Elizabeth Peyton, she creates direct and humourous icons that happen to reflect our time — such as the 2019 work of a smiling toilet roll.
