Alchemy

 

Isabelle’s creative process involves the application of semi-transparent layers of wax, paint, photography and pigment, striving to create depth and translucency without compromising the spirit of the medium or subject matter.

The physical process of encaustic painting echoes the alchemist’s repertoire of metamorphoses and process of manipulating mediums. The subject matter emerges in its true light via the transmutation of base materials through fire. During this alchemical process, matter shifts and transforms, resisting fixity, manifesting beyond the boundaries of the figurative, opening doors to a world both tangible and contemplative.
