Isabelle De Kleine

Watercolour, gouache + acrylic on paper

Framed under Perspex in Tasmanian oak

Says Isabelle of her work: “As the sun bore down, you fled alone to the shadows. The figure is comprised of overlapping shapes and colours in an exploration of vulnerability and alienation. The use of colour, texture and shape lead the eye across the work, drawing focus into pockets of detail whilst obscuring other aspects of the face and body to remove the defining features.

“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.”
