Isabelle Menin

CURRENT EXHIBITION: New Flora
September 10-24, 2022
350 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Belgian photographer Isabelle Menin (b. 1961, Brussels) refers to her photographs as ‘disordered landscapes’: composed of numerous original photographs, Menin juxtaposes her floral subject matter with her skillful use of digital manipulation to create vignettes imbued with playful artifice.

Informed by her background as a painter and illustrator, the painterly nature and graphic sensibility of Menin’s approach reinterprets her own photographic imagery of flowers as source material. Digitally abstracted and reoriented, the petals and stems abundant in Menin’s compositions become disembodied gestures. Through Menin’s process, these expressive forms coalesce into layered transparencies and riotous arrangements, imbued simultaneously with a Baroque lushness and sophisticated contemporary edge.

Menin is a graduate of the Graphic Research School (ERG) in Brussels and has exhibited internationally in numerous art fairs and museums, Menin's works can be found in numerous private and corporate collections.
