About

Self-taught through her patient work on clay, which she has been sculpting for more than twenty years, Isabelle Thiltgès, Belgian by birth, currently lives and works in Brussels, where she resettled after some thirty years of Parisian life. Independent and nourished by life, she addresses various themes that are instinctively chosen in line with her sensitivity. "My bronze sculptures invite the viewer to travel. Whether small or large, from birds to inhabited circles, from full faces to sketched human silhouettes, the eye wonders between the solids and hollows shaped by the sharp and essential refined lines that I love so much." Deliberate eclecticism and sobriety combine to highlight the originality of her work, much present in private collections and regularly exhibited throughout Europe and in the United States; that of an unclassifiable free spirit capable of giving form to the impalpable, of a profundity that she expresses with restraint and authenticity This bronze sculpture is not quite figurative yet Isabelle has created a true dialogue between the two wavy abstract shapes that, as suggested from the title ( escarmouche means skirmish in English) veritably seem to be heaving a battle of some sort. Perhaps a dancing fight like the one suggested by the elegant moves of the Argentinian tango dance, when the lead and follow connect chest-to-chest. *This is number 2 out of an edition of 8
