Oh joy! Oh inspiration! Oh colour!
I feel like a child standing before Isabelle Dubois' paintings. I want to jump inside and run and play and swing from letter to letter... I want to dance. I want to hum, sing, shout, laugh out loud. I want to show them to my children, tell them their stories, let them hear their music - sparkle, fizz, whirr- invent a magical land, hide and dream!
Rennes-based artist Isabelle Dubois' work makes me happy. I discovered her paintings by chance and love every single line, dot, stroke, splash of colour. I love the language they speak, her use of signs, letters, words, the chalkboard. Sheer poetry!
Isabelle teaches art. She has a wealth of experience and has passed on her skills to children in schools, workshops and her own art classes. Behind their apparent simplicity, her paintings are rich and deep, transporting you back to childhood at a glance. I'd love my children to be able to work with her, be touched by her energy and inspiration. A rare gift that would be.
Browse through Isabelle's portfolio, it will transport you to Never-Never land. Her work is available through her blog.
