Through her artwork, Isabelle de Kleine explores how imperfectly perfect of our perception and memory can be. “As we are subjective beings our experiences are constantly informing our understanding of the world, these cognitive biases mean that our ‘truths’ might not be universally true. Although one’s perception might not be a perfectly accurate interpretation of the world, there is still great beauty in these imperfections.”
Isabelle’s work is created through multiple stages to reflect the theory that our memory is constantly being rewritten and reimaged. Her paintings begin with a digital collage, created from her own photographs and sourced imagery which are manipulated and disrupted to form the composition. These collages are then reimagined and interpreted through paint.
The works engage the notion of (our) constructed reality through references to fashion and beauty, perception and identity. Furthermore, they employ modernist and contemporary references that allude to the passing of time, allowing the figures to sit in a perpetual state of change. A stillness within the moving and a movement within the still.
