Isabelle Borges finds inspiration for her abstract paintings, collages and installations in photographic studies of nature.
« One day, my gaze got caught on a “drawing” created through the broken boughs of water plants standing in the middle of the lake (…) ». From the strategy of multiple foldings, reflections and rotations of internal forms, she creates “moving surfaces” providing the framework for a condensed pictorial space. The reference to the Neo-Concretists from Brazil cannot be overlooked.
Borges studied at the art academies in Rio de Janeiro and Düsseldorf. Her works are represented in numerous institutional and private collections in Brazil and Germany.
