Cornelia Stoop


I was born an Afrikaans female in 1983, the first of four children. I grew up and completed my studies at TUT in Pretoria, Gauteng South- Africa.

I am now working and living in the Western Cape, Pringle Bay.


The images I develop are often zoomorphic. Animals are depicted and combined with human traits in a quirky fashion.The work exists in a world in which the playing field is levelled between various forms of existence, such as animals, humans and objects. Each element is used metaphorically, and often contains social commentary.
