Employing diverse media – including pencil, pastel, ink and watercolour – Isabella Ducrot’s works compress an array of cultural references, encompassing philosophy, folklore and textile weaving. At both intimate and expansive scales, she draws upon and reinterprets the rare textiles that she has collected from different parts of the world. The artist’s chosen subjects are landscapes, circles, lovers, vases and teapots. Repetition is the subject and primary theme in many of Ducrot’s works. It becomes the object of representation, the protagonist of the image. The rhythm of life, the heartbeat, is expressed by repetitive elements, which are, not coincidentally, also musical elements. This is a celebration of virtual infinity.
