ISABELLE DUPUY - The Majesty of Trees...
Trees are symbolic of beauty, strength, wisdom, eternal life... They deliver a universal message that Isabelle Dupuy is able to paint like no-one else does.
The trees she paints are, mainly, ones planted by humans. She explores the connectivity of humans and nature and their contribution to each other's environment. "Browns, oranges, yellows and greens of every character glisten from the foliage telling their own story and character " ISABELLE DUPUY.
"Nothing tells the season better than the trees". The relationship also connects her Artwork to her French heritage.
Humans have been shaping the very nature of french territory for thousands of years... They've been doing it for long enough that a harmonious and shared habitat has been established, visible in the landscapes, and celebrated in Isabelle's work (see latest collection).
Without trying to replicate landscapes, she is inspired by nature and lays on the canvas her very personal vision of it, balancing the elements of fantasy and abstraction with her extraordinary connection to place. Turning it into our special place as well (see another example: the Maroon Bells).
The 3 dimensional aspect of her work allows her to play uniquely with light and shadows, expressing some of the most beautiful contrasts to be found in nature.
