OPENING NIGHT DRINKS – Thursday 21 September 2023, 5-8pm.
Join us for the new solo exhibition by Isabelle De Kleine in our Woolloomooloo gallery. Continuing on from her successful Sydney Contemporary presentation we are thrilled to announce that Isabelle de Kleine’s solo body World was on Fire will be exhibiting at the gallery.
“My body of work comprises a series of mixed media watercolour paintings that explore the complexities, struggles and richness of human experience. The works speak of the dualities of love and loss, light and dark, the web of experience that weaves together the beautiful and flawed tapestry of ourselves.
“The figures depicted are envoys of my contemplations on identity and the psyche. When realisation comes that our reality is fabrication, when we understand the fallibility of ourselves and the falsities we have created; what remains? Who do we become? The works depict the liminal space that we occupy when we are left in loss, and the reconstruction of self that occurs in the wake of grief.”
