Sophie Degano is a narrative painter.
Anchored. Without debate. Without diversion. Prolific.
For whom being a woman is not a niche subject
but rather a building in which to nest.
Like the sharp blade of the cabinetmaker, she cuts in the expressionist history to deliver us a feminine memento rather than feminist.
For this new collaboration, her suggestive ex-votos offer a discreet celebration
of the jewel penetrated and the glory of the penetrant.
