Staying a way from the well-trodden track of the gesture of lyrical abstraction on one hand,

and the parsimony of the minimalists on the other,

Isabelle Palenc stages with a singular grace, a subtle, delicate touch : Unique.

Her palette, all in half-shades, varies at the whim of a surprisingly agile brush.

Scattered like a swarm of butterflies, the brushstrokes gradually descend upon the canvas with their vibrations,

creating a chaos suddenly contained by the radical gesture of the artist.


Isabelle Palenc presents us with a work free of ostentation : full of nuance, where our gaze is lost at leisure.
