Inspired by two of the most important artist of this century, Donald Judd and Gerard Ritcher, Isabelle Beaubien’s mixed media paintings combine vibrant, dynamic colors that generate excitement and emotion.
Similar to Ritcher’s technique, she does not paint with brushes; She takes a chance in one stroke that could or could not result in a great painting. Isabelle is also very attracted by minimal art and that’s why her work is a mixture of the colorful, glossy, and perfect sculptures of Donald Judd and the surprising and blurry paintings of Ritcher.
She gets that result by the combination of acrylic and a resin that creates a very glossy finish and sensation of depth on some part of the work. These painting look very sculptural because of the thickness of the finished canvas, producing a beautiful object on the wall.
Her attraction for the uncertainty and the fact that she can never predict the final result provokes a surprisingly happy reaction when the color interacts perfectly with each other. She would never retouch a painting, it’s a one shot experience.
Isabelle is someone who has strong control on her surroundings. This technique allows her the freedom needed to create an amazing piece or art.
