Description

French-born Isabelle Proust was trained as a photographer and developed an interest in European frescos, which inspired her imagery in other media.

"Coquelicots" merges two media to create her unique color prints. Starting with an intaglio process, drypoint, she sketches a repeatable image on the matrix. When printing the impression she hand paints the surface uniquely as a monoprint.

This style complements her subject matter, which often references dreams and ancient histories to create layered, delicate imagery.
