EXCLUSIVE ONE NIGHT SOLO EXHIBITION FOR ISABELLE BABINGTON
Isabelle was born and raised in France and has lived in England, Canada and various American states before moving to the Washington area. She has been drawing and painting forever, studying independently and exploring various mediums and influences thtoughout the years.
Since 2003, her paintings have been exhibited yearly in solo and group shows, and have appeared in a number of American, European and Australian collections. Her artwork has been printed on posters, greeting cards, CD covers, porcelain, as well as business and non-profit logos. Her inspiration are eclectic and spontaneous; she has an eye for colors and how to place them playfully and harmoniously on the canvas, whether it is a landscape, a still life or an abstract composition.
"It often starts with recording instants, like the page markers of life: enjoyable moments, quiet places, inspirational experiences, questions to ponder. When I begin painting, I rarely know where it will lead me, and then the forms and pigments move around until I discover a new land/city/interior-scape that speaks to me. Sometimes it tells a story and continues to evolve; the finished painting could be completely different from the initial idea. I am happy to release the interpretation to the viewers and let them finish the story the way it speaks to them.
Above all there is my quest for harmony. The way colors interact together fascinates me. Shapes, curves, and lines move around, whether they form a recognizable image or an abstract picture. I want it to be pleasant for the eye. Just like Delacroix said: Le premier mérite d’un tableau est d’être une fête pour l’œil. There is joy in the process" - Isabelle Babington.
