Isabelle's Style

Isabelle's work often focuses on the diversity of the female figure, drawing portraits using simple lines - reminiscent of ancient Egyptian drawings or carvings. The eyes, the mouth and profile become graphic icons in her work. Her portraits are both touching and playful. Always working in series and repeating motifs and figures, dreamed up in her head, she creates visual puzzles, expressing the female complexity. 

 

Through her imagined subjects, she attempts to depict the non-visible. Isabelle uses ink as her main medium, balancing between precise lines and the unpredictability of using ink - which can often bleed out onto the page, depending on the different absorption of the paper. Her work was recently selected by Paul Smith to be exhibited in his boutiques around Europe, touring from Paris, to London, to Hamburg and finally Amsterdam. 

"I've imagined a series of eccentric beetles wearing their best outfit for a party. The beetles are decorated with a cocktail of different patterns, inspired by motifs taken from wax cloth, antique embroidery, Indian block print forming a puzzle of eclectic patterns and colours evoking a textile patchwork piece created by a cunning textile collector. The giant size of the beetles, allows us to see the multiple details formed by the patterns and colours, reminding us of the complexity and fragility of nature." - Isabelle Hayman

Drop 4 - High Summer 2021

"The animal drawings are full of humour with elements taken from costume and bold graphic silhouettes filled with patterns. The portraits on long narrow strips of paper are like a mosaic of faces playing on decorative accents and colour. The 3 women portraits are part of of a previous work done on women silhouettes." - Isabelle Hayman, Drawings, Ink on paper

Drop 3 - Summer 2021

"The series is humourous, showing bodies in all their glorious imperfections emerging from the lockdown." - Isabelle Hayman, Our Glorious Imperfections

Spring Limited Edition Prints

Drop 1 - New Year 2021

The series of women wearing swimsuit and jewellery are painted on mid-century Penguin books pages. They are full of energy and superb. They impose themselves and expose themselves with frankness, naivety, and sophistication. - Swimsuits Series

Isabelle also has a passion for ceramics which she diverts with joyful insolence. In the Picasso she has selected and combined 12 Picasso's ceramic pieces. She was drawn to the Gio Ponti's pieces because of their narrative and stylised circus and boxing figures. - Ceramic Series

Drop 5 - Winter 2020

"I found the notebook in an antique market. If I remember it was a disappointing day looking for antiques, and at the end I found this stand selling vintage notebooks and bought a few. The one I have used is dated 1908, it is a German vocabulary notebook, belonging to a woman, the paper quality is still amazing, the cover is mock leather. The blue silhouettes are painted with blue ink. I wanted to express a kind of boldness and happiness very similar to dancing." - Isabelle Hayman

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

“I am fascinated by the history of ceramics because it is usually the work of someone highly trained using ancestral techniques as well as its own creativity. I collect vintage books on ceramic as well as vintage auction house catalogues, it is fascinating to delve into collections built along the years by one individual. 

Chinese porcelain has had a huge influence on European porcelain, when the first samples were brought back from the East India company. I have chosen 2 examples of "Famille verte" porcelain tea pots. The 3 drawings of plates are Kraak Chinese porcelain, blue motifs, with a large border divided into segments. This style can also be found in Japan and Iran.”- Isabelle Hayman, Chinese Porcelain Series

Drop 3 - High Summer 2020

"This is a collection about swimming and enjoying the freedom of being near the water. I love being on the beach and watching people, families together, it is a time to reconnect." - Isabelle Hayman
