Gray Contemporary presents Isabelle Beaupré: "Untitled" opening day
The non-figurative artworks of Isabelle Beaupré can be perceived as an in-between painting and sculpture. She meticulously uses different materials such as wood, plaster, sand and jute. She creates through repetitions of shapes and/or textures some monochrome compositions often delimited by segmentation, fragmentation or stratification. Her artistic production is empowered by the aesthetic potential of its constituents themselves.
The artist is motivated by the possibility to create, manipulate and modify a shape. Her practice questions the possible infinite number of repeats of these shapes, each replica being necessarily submitted to a certain level of changes. Her refined and solemn work highlights the importance of details as her ethos is close to minimalism and Arte povera. Her creative process is based on concentration and contemplation, it adopts an instinctive approach reaching beyond formalism, it possesses its own sensitive aspect.
The exhibition will remain on display through January 9, 2021.
