For Isabelle Bonzom, painting can be everywhere. On the surface of a canvas as well as on a piece of architecture, whether outside or inside. That is why Isabelle Bonzom has been painting on site since 1987. Her murals are painted freehand and alla prima.
When she paints on a wall, Isabelle Bonzom does not aim at covering it entirely. Instead, she plays with the texture and color of the wall and takes in account the ensemble formed by the building. Therefore, her mural paintings punctuate the space and suggest a world of metamorphosis, motion and evolution.
Isabelle Bonzom responds to both public and private commissions. For on site works, Isabelle creates interplays of analogies, integrations, gaps and shifts. Her paintings “animate” the space. As the viewer strolls, he or she discovers, examines and wonders before “appropriating” the work.
