In her works, the stylisation of life assumes a radical depth, offering a particular language for reading and imagining the things of the world. Thus, we see appear species that carry traits from the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms and convey universality through their most regional aspects.

Solange Pessoa (Ferros, 1961), lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Her selected solo exhibitions include Solange Pessoa, Blum & Poe, Los Angeles (2017); Solange Pessoa, Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo (2016); Metaflor-Metaflora, Museu Mineiro, Belo Horizonte (2013); Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte (2008); Museu da Inconfidência, Ouro Preto (2000); Palácio das Artes, Belo Horizonte (1995); and Centro Cultural São Paulo, (1992).
