Isabelle Gautier is a contemporary artist whose ouvre is a mélange of abstract
expressionism and minimalist modern paintings and sculptures.
Living in Paris in the late 1980's Gautier visits museums, galleries, meets artists and
discovers drawing and painting firsthand.
Her move to The United States in 1999 is decisive. It is in Atlanta, Georgia that she engages
with artistic communities, develops a network of galleries, and participates in different
exhibitions around the country.
Gautier rapidly affirms her passion for abstract expressionism and invites the observer to
participate in her large gestural paintings on both an intellectual and emotional level.
The artist makes her mark as one of the early abstract expressionist artists in the South. She
designs and installs large public and corporate art projects. Her paintings are selected by
Marietta Cobb Museum of Art and featured in international art shows.
Very prolific, the artist will later be inspired by Asian art and philosophy, immersing herself in
a more minimalistic world. Her paintings then evolve towards taschism and calligraffiti. Her
style becomes quite recognizable and receives high praise inside the Nashville art collectors
As an engaged artist, she is drawn to paint large portraits inspired by contemporary American
authors like Nobel Prize novelist Toni Morrison who provided the inspiration for Gautier's
painting "The Bluest Eye". "The Purple Child" was exhibited recently in Brooklyn, New York.
Today she has her studio in the south of France where she continues to create paintings and
sculptures, always experimenting with new mediums and techniques.
