Isa Dahl

Born in 1965

What seems to be blades of grass, feathers and plant fibres are actually dynamically applied brushstrokes with which Isa Dahl creates her biomorphic pictures. Dahl glazes layers of paint on top of each other, creating motifs on the canvas that oscillates between figuration and abstraction. Fascinatingly, she explores the similarities between abstract painting and gestural calligraphy. Each painting conveys a captivating depth of space that reveals infinite layers to the viewer when looked at closely.

The German artist studied painting at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Dahl has been awarded numerous scholarships and prizes for her works. She lives and works in Stuttgart. At the Art fair art Karlsruhe in 2016, her large-format paintings were one of the highlights.
