Il segreto della vita
nell'eterno femminile, la Donna, la Madre, la Venere
come la terra materna che nutre, la saggezza femminile
come anima del mondo.
Regina delle forze animiche, inconsce, è la fata gentile
dei luoghi naturali, l'irata fata/strega furiosa,
la maga saggia, la "hu li ching" o spirito volpe,
la veggente che penetra i segreti delle forme e dei colori arcaici.
Questa è la pittura dai colori antichi dell'artista norvegese Helene Knoop,
le radici della sua abilità sono nascoste, lei è l'eterna misteriosa
che rivela la sua arte soltanto in semplici immagini oscure, di un realismo
senza tempo, e in oracoli come la Sfinge, in un rapporto di vicinanza
delicata e amorosa.
Queste sono le eterne donne sagge della Knoop, imperscrutabili, seducenti,
rivelatrici di sentimenti profondi, nascosti, che ci affascinano
e ci confondono allo stesso tempo.

(Presentazione di Mauro Nobilini 3 febbraio 2005)

The secret of the life in the feminine eternal,
the Woman, the Mother, the Venus like the maternal earth that feeds,
the feminine wisdom like the spirit of the world.
Queen of the animist, unconscious forces,
is the kind fairy of the natural places,
angry and furios fairy/witch, the wise wizard, "hu li ching"
or vixen spirit, the seer that penetrates the secrets
of the shapes and the arcaic colors.
This is the painting with the antique colors
of the Norwegian artist Helene Knoop,
the roots of its ability are hidden,
she is the mysterious eternal
who only reveals her art in simple dark images,
of a realism without time, and in oracles like the Sphinx,
a relationship of delicate and loving vicinity.
These are the eternal wise women of Knoop,
impenetrable, seducing, revealing hidden deep feelings,
that fascinate us and confuse us at the same time.

A catalogue has been made in connection with the show. Here, Prof. Dr.
Jan-Erik Ebbestad Hansen at the University of Oslo has written the

" The same orientation toward what is human can be found in
her large figurative compositions where she brings the
viewer into a mythic world and tells the timeless story
of the various male stages of life (Manhood and Before
the Thunderstorm), and the struggle between man and
woman (The Wedding or Hunting Grounds). These are
myths in the sense that she communicates basic human.
conditions regardless of time and place. But simultaneously,
and this is a characteristic of her work, her paintings
reflect a longing for a different and better world"
