Lines & Forms

Works by Isabel Albrecht

Isabel Albrecht's new series of works on paper, “Lines & Forms”, enrich her artistic repertoire with a fully new element, the defined form is added to the line.

The layered compositions of horizontal and vertical lines of previous drawings are overlaid with colourful geometrical forms. Triangles, circles, squares and rhombic shapes are introduced as additional visual vocabulary. The modernist forms imbue her repetitive working practice with a new sense of measure and wholeness.
Controlled, equally spaced, translucent brush lines, executed in ink and watercolour, build up to shapes that hover above the linear patterns beneath them or formally intervene with the regular basic structure.
Created by the German artist as an ongoing series, "Lines & Forms" consists of colour coded schemes and compositions anchored between intuition and ratio, between chance and control, moving from systematic drawing and colour progressions to optical illusion and onwards to a kind of drawn spirituality.
The result is drawing as visual thinking, shifting between the formal and the ephemeral.

Isabel Albrecht studied Drawing at Camberwell College of Art from 1998 to 2002 and did her Master at the Royal College of Art from 2002 to 2004. She has exhibited internationally and is part of numerous private collections in Europe and the United States.
Albrecht lives and works in Frankfurt.
