Artistic approach

I am body, I am flesh, I am scientific body.

Isabelle PARSON takes interest in the body and matter as raw, cosmical and universal entities. She explores nature as an organic, mineral, synthetic matter in plastic, metallic, translucid and diaphanous shapes. She foresees in transparency and matter fluidity, in what is more or less seizable and concrete, the expression of what is invisible and what leads to the dissolution of a whole, by reducing its composants. The photographed body then dissolves in light particles, fading in shades, like the atom in the universe; furthermore in the photographic memory, as data.

Her work technic displays a sensitivity to matter that is oriented towards an obvious dysfonctionnement as a place of creation, of discovery and new apprehension shapes. Her practice is both about investigation and a more, formal, intuitive and reflective approach. Prepared by the artist or found by chance; the objects and images are selected for their evocation of remiscined events of her past.
