Isolde Engeljehringer was born in 1957 in Graz, Styria. She finished her studies in law (diploma program) at the University of Graz with her graduation (Magistra iuris) and 1981 with the second graduation (Doctor iuris). After court practice in Graz, she has been a civil servant in Vienna since 1982.

In addition to numerous classes taken at art schools, including courses hosted by Peter Mairinger, Bogdan Baku, Isolde Folger, Lucia Riccelli, Gerhard Almbauer, Marina Thurnhofer, as well as by Josef Kaiser at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, she further developed her skills autodidactically. The artist’s oeuvre is primarily dedicated to acrylic painting on canvas.

Two main themes are giving distinction to the artist’s oeuvre: i.e., the human body, in particular the female body, and expressive abstraction. The artist receives her inspiration from live models, and their physical movements, as well as from the movements of her own emotions, which she expresses in a gestural and colourful way.

Her favourite concept is what she calls "Cyberladies": strong, contemporaneous women, who are standing the challenges of the modern world, and at the same time preserving their female beauty. Depicting their flowing, graceful movements would express an erotic aesthetics, which is characteristic of the artist’s approach. Her approach affirms the natural artlessness of human sexuality as well as the creative artificiality of human eroticism. It expresses intense erotic joy but also colours of pain.

The dynamics of physical and emotional movement caught in the artist’s paintings is supported by the strong colours she is using, like red, blue, green, and black, while the colours of extravagance, i.e. gold and silver, would express the more artificial dimension of erotic temptation.

The artist has shown her works in 45 solo and group exhibitions since 2007
