Isabelle Beauverd


First Commissions inspired by Self Portrait with Monkeys: divulge an unattainable desire.

Artist Statement

Grapple is the exploration of an individual’s search for meaning. It begins in a state of fight, in which the individual is forced to perform programmed ideas and learnt behaviours with disregard to the consequences. Eventually this unsustainable structure falls apart, facing them with more personal notions of connection, freedom, and fulfilment.
