Isabella Kressin

Isabella Kressin’s practice focuses on the use felting and collage techniques to manipulate both found and personal images. The artist is principally interested in the process of metamorphosis, and how it relates to the body and its immaterial forms. Her pieces are intimate, and draw on themes found in mythology, as well as memories of her adolescence.   Flirting between sculpture and photography, Kressin employs a technique of laser printing black and white images onto sheets of silk encased in nebulous billows of merino wool. The artist takes the female body as her subject of choice, portraying them in various states of nudity, relief, ecstasy, and joy.
