Solange Knopf was born in Brussels in 1957. Attracted to art for as long as she can remember, she put it on the back burner for a number of years, until it came to the fore as a way of coping with painful episodes in her life. At the end of the 90s, she studied at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Ixelles, but, driven by the need for resolutely personal expression, she soon withdrew from all artistic training. The Art et marges museum collection includes two drawings by Solange Knopf. Done in Indian ink on the pages of old books, they present faces in amniotic suspension, and it is unclear whether they are animal or human. A pre-existing stain seems to have guided these compositions, dated 2011. Since then, Solange Knopf has explored broader supports, and for a time entrusted her gesture to a more geometric construction, but her work always exudes a high degree of the spiritual and supernatural. Her work is like an invitation to the depths of being, strewn with faces, like spectres, in the shape of mysteries. Her work is represented by Cavin-Morris Gallery, New York.
