120 ARTIST SHOWCASE Isabelle Beaubien
Community, 2017, acrylic and resin on canvas, 122 x 151 cm
sing handmade tools, Isabelle Beaubienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic mixed media paintings are created with layers of vibrant acrylic colour.
Her unique aesthetic has seen her developing painting techniques that push the limits of texture and form; applying glossy resin directly onto the paint to enhance each canvas while giving a sculptural appearance to the completed work. In her studio, Beaubien adopts an alter ego while
painting, driven by emotion, spirituality and chance in an otherwise orderly world. Originally from Montreal, Canada, Beaubien gained her Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Contemporary Art from The Villa Arson in France before moving to Florida (via London) to live and work. Her next solo exhibition opens in Miami in September. isabellebeaubien.com firstname.lastname@example.org
