ISABELLE DUPUY - inspired by an Aspen classic...
'Majestic Forest of the Colorful Waters'
Isabelle Dupuy (More about the Artist)
The Maroon Bells are part of Aspen's identity and pride. This mountain is picture perfect... And is the most photographed peak in America! Isabelle does much more than just reproduce a place........
A journey from reality to abstraction
In her paintings, Isabelle rides a fine line between reality and abstraction: it's easy to recognize real features in her Artwork: Aspen trees, mountains, rivers... Isabelle starts with a very personal and specific inspiration that evolves on the canvas to be accessible and non-didactic.
These places will most likely feel familiar and for some, specific. "Your Place".... The intention is that it becomes your special place, where ever that may be.
Her ability to connect to humanity may just be the reason she is the Number 1 mover of Artworks in the history of the gallery.
Comparison side by side
Isabelle has always been inspired by the mountains. The painting is as humbling as the Bells themselves: the 60x72 format she chose gives the work the grand justice is demands.
It's quite fascinating to put side by side a photo of the peak and her work. She has a unique perspective that makes a specific place, everyones.
