Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations
Belgium artist, Isabelle De Borchgrave has a fantastic show up now at the Serge Sorokko Gallery. Following a recent critically acclaimed show at the Legion of Honor, De Borchgrave’s show at Sorokko exhibits exciting new works on paper and sculptures. This is a must-see for anyone in the Bay Area.
“Largely inspired by her travels and the rich textures and colors of ethnic textiles, de Borchgrave creates a magical world of beauty that is entirely her own. Her remarkable tromp l’oeil works on paper transport her audiences to an altogether different time and place. ‘Isabelle de Borchgrave freely shares her adventures in beauty – a beauty that, beneath her gaze and from her fingertips, pours out unstintingly,’observes the The World of Interiors. ‘Isabelle is one of a kind,’ declares the illustrious French couturier Hubert de Givenchy, “she plays with paper as a virtuoso plays an instrument.”
