Born in Paris in 1960, Sophie Dreyfus was only a child at the events of 68, but this revolution had a definite influence on herself and her family by the wind of freedom and new ideas it brought.
After a short spell at Met de Penninghen, she started working life, first in an illustrator’s agency, then as an director’s assistant in movies, and from the 90’s, as an antique dealer, a profession that allowed to take back her brushes as a paintings restorer.
In the 2000s, Sophie Dreyfus decided to stop « painting » on others works, to create her own works.
Abstraction, figuration, narration, impression, what is the word, or rather what are the words that best describe the work of Sophie Dreyfus.
The lines are not linear, the solids are not united, the curves do not slope, the standing water becomes sky.
