The artist lives and works in Saint-Ouen sur Seine near Paris
A gentle and sensitive palette in the pursuit of a poetic reality
Colour is central to her work, and she creates her colours from a restrictive palette, composed of natural pigments and carefully crafted until it reaches the intended harmony, which confers to her sober and vigorous painting a unique and intimate atmosphere.Their colours are never bright but much more like colour tones, nuances, earthy and a wide variety of ochres. Isabelle Delannoy mounts the layers alternating work of material and glazing in search of a dimmed figurative art leading to abstraction, allowing a touch of unreal into her scenery enshrouded with poetry. The artist masters every step of the oil painting art, ranging from the priming of the canvas to the crafting of the pigments and mediums.
The compositions of Isabelle Delannoy blossom, nourished by delicate and warm harmonies which she exalts in series telling a story, revolving around a single subject inviting the “observer” into a poetic reality, where the structure of the ensemble is essential.
