Works in progress, inspirations, and interests.
Bio: Theresa Knopf is a visual artist from Los Angeles, California. She creates works in a multitude of medium including oil, watercolor, pastel, graphite, and three-dimensional sculptural paintings. Taking pleasure in the entire process of creating art, from building and preparing her surfaces to adding the finishing touches to each of her works, Theresa combines an organic line quality, vivid colors, and deep personal experiences to infuse her body of work with both aesthetic complexity and a strong sense of emotional depth.
Theresa spent time abroad to study Art History in France. This opportunity not only allowed her to grasp a deeper understanding of the Western tradition in art, but also enabled her to meet new people and take in her surroundings in a way that books could never allow. Her life and artwork are given depth by first hand experiences such as these.
Theresa’s art has been featured at pop-up galleries around Los Angeles and she has been commissioned to create artworks for film makers and musicians. In 2011, she painted a portrait of composer Bob Ostertag for the Los Angeles premier of the award winning documentary film essay “The Reach of Resonance”.
