The artist known as Isabelita eschews the confrontational and aggressive style of many modern art pieces in favor of paintings that are beautiful, harmonious, and perfectly balanced. She calls her unique style of abstract painting “cosmogony,” because the first piece she created was “like an explosion of music coming out of my heart.” Although not figurative, each piece is representative of the genesis of life and origin of the cosmos. In a sense, Isabelita's work can be interpreted as a macro of a supernova, a building block of elements breaking apart and coming together all at once. Isabelita also experiments with natural textures and pigments, such as sand, dirt, leaves, moss, tea, and seeds, allowing her colors to interact “as if they were living organisms.” The result is a collection of work that transcends the term pretty and appears almost hypnotic and sublime.
Isabelita was born in Seville and studied at Christie’s of London. She currently lives and works in Madrid.
