1966, France; lives and works in France
Isabelle D creates abstract landscapes as a means
to decolonize her past and reclaim the present to reconstitute and celebrate her memory, heritage and the self. Her work can be interpreted as a new form
of feminist practice, linking together traditional means of production with autobiographical subject matter exploring contemporary feminism and the translation of ‘Trauma into Beauty’.
Her recent works, although they may appear coral-like, are abstracted landscapes that deal with the bruises caused by colonisation. The artist selects her colour palette carefully, as they often correlate to the colouration of a bruise in its various stages from purples to blues to greens to yellows.
