Isabelle Beaubien (the second part…)
Here is the second part of our interview with the artist.
“Even if that can sound “cliché” honestly, I would like people that see my work to feel good about it.”
- What do you want to convey to the one who contemplates your works?
Even if that can sound “cliché” honestly, I would like people that see my work to feel good about it. To give them that Good Vibes Feeling! My paintings are very colorful, energetic and powerful so I wish they could lighten up a room and a life!
- Can you describe your approach, your style, your technique?
Here’s the question I always dread a little bit. Often, when people look at my work for the first time, they can be puzzled. They can often wonder what are they looking at? A painting? A digital printing? A collage? I really enjoy this uncertainty that gives a little mystery to my work but also open the door for a conversation. Because of that, I like keeping the secret about my technique and how I create the paintings. But, I can tell you that I never uses brushes and that I create my own tools and my work it’s a lot of trial and error. Stretching canvas is a big part of my daily routine because I don’t get to that perfect combination of color in one shot!
- How does your personality affect your works?
I am a passionate and energetic and I think or maybe I hope that this get easily translated in my work. I love life, to move and to dance and for some reason many DJ all around the world acquired my paintings, so I would think they got that feeling to!!!
- What is your experience ? (How many years have you been painting? What are the biggest exhibitions in which you have participated? What mentions and / or awards have you received over the years?)
Professionally, for the last 5 years. The biggest show I exhibited in was Scope during Art Basel week in Miami last December. I also had the opportunity to do solo exhibition in great galleries in London and Miami.
- How do you see the future? (The future of Art and yours at the same time?)
With everything that’s going on in the world at the moment, it’s hard to see what the future will look like. Before the pandemic I was exhibiting in international Art Fair and now that we don’t know when it will be possible to travel again we have to readjust. I think the online market might be a way to consider.
