The key is first and foremost to convey emotion.
Isabelle was born in Montreuil in 1963. Of all the modes of expression, it is in painting and sculpture she has always felt most comfortable. She therefore attended ten years of classes at the Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz School of Art. There, one of her teachers taught her to "dirty" a sheet of paper. On that day she understood that anything goes. The artist would begin with portraits of women. Whether they are painted on canvas or sculpted in clay, Isabelle seeks first to complete the resemblance to the subject, highlighting the reliefs and working beyond the frame. Working with pure abstraction, she gradually comes to mix the two. Guided by her thoughts and mood, the artist now combines the figurative and abstract.
Most often Isabelle works horizontally and rotates around the table in search of a balance between the masses and colours. She then places the canvas on her easel to focus on what remains uncertain. Her feelings, her stories; she draws more from the past identity of the materials she chooses than in creating a work of introspection. In fact, she loves to use all kinds of materials and timeworn objects, marked by a first life. She adds words, imperfect lines drawn in charcoal, "accidental stains" of paint, ink or pigment, and then assembles these elements like pieces of a puzzle. Short and successive, these stories are like little moments of life where people and things are shaped by time.
