About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Sophie Whettnall creates series of works for which she employs repeated procedures or protocols that often call upon common materials in a counter-intuitive and sometimes violent way; she constructs shifting models from primitive hand gestures. Sophie Whettnall constructs images from parallel, hand-drawn lines of red ink to create undulating landscape outlines reminiscent of topographic maps.

Sophie Whettnall, born in 1973 in Brussels, Belgium. Lives and works in Brussels.

Since the 1990's Whettnall work has been a reflection on the forces that define our relation with world around us, materializing and documenting them. Sophie Whettnall focuses on light, and documents it in her work, but has also eye for its absence, i.e, the zones in which its passage.

One of the main themes of Sophie Whettnall's work rest on a dialectic tension and resolution between contradictory concepts and perceptions : between softness and sensuality and a rawer and more rugged even violent aspect (in both gestures and materials), between yin and yang, let's be frank, between femininity and masculinity, the work often contributes to the background, and by it's own admission, to a form of autobiographical unveiling.

The landscape – a more than traditional subject – remains one of the constantly recurring themes in the work of Sophie Whettnall via diverse meanderings.
