About

“Does it matter?” Isjah explores this question by zooming in and out by instigating wonder. She makes her work on simple, accessible surfaces such as recycled paper, photo’s, cardboard or a piece of wood. Driven by curiosity she lays layers, shapes and lines on top of each other. Diluted paint spills out spontaneously. Seas, a horizon, coral reefs, disappearing insects? In the loosely set up image, a vague feeling emerges as an undertone. The result is an image that squeezes past the aesthetically pleasing picture. A layered image remains, searching for more than words.
