STATEMENT

I choose to use mainly paper to make original collages with images from magazines and books from 1920 up to the present.

Within my analogue and sometimes digital work, I try to play with proportions, dialectic and context. A conversation occurs between current events and ideals, a social reality with an extra dimension of meaning or a layer of surrealism.

The transformation of each individual image gives the viewer the opportunity to reinterpret elements or new readymade images.

BIO

My artist name is Lebasille, a pseudonym of Isabelle. I was born in Belgium in 1989 and I’ve been a creative nut ever since.

With a growing love for imagery of different worlds, eras and ideals, I started to cut out and assemble countless images.

Since 2018, I’m attending 2 different courses in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Many exhibitions followed, of which the most memorable was in a museum in The Netherlands about food in art in the past and present.
