Isabelle Joubert’s work is about woman. She’s very keen on female portraits or what she calls “anti-portrait” since her character is often hidden by something. You don’t see her face. Maybe it is to enable the viewer to identify himself more easily depending on the situation, or maybe it’s because there’s a secret behind all this.
The other main feature in her work is that the female character makes often one with nature. This is her “green” touch in the field of art. She loves plants and their poetry, she’s a nature lover. She needs nature to get resourced when she’s down. So she loves to tell stories with this element.
She has always been drawn to mixed media. She loves to combine paper, acrylics, watercolors, pigment, ink. Each of them has its own texture and the final result is richer. In addition, she’s also keen on photography, and she always uses either hers or those of magazines to begin an artwork. This kind of constraint releases her creativity.
Following her inspiration and what she needs to express, she works on small series. Some artworks are plentiful, some are sober.
Aestheticism and oneirism are essential in her work. She wishes everyone a positive energy linked to harmony and life pleasure while looking at it.
