London gallery Victoria Miro Mayfair presents the first in the UKpersonal exhibition of paintings by Ilse D'Hollander (1968 - 1997). In her short life, the artist has created many intellectual, sensual and very resonant works that find a response and a new audience even decades later since the death of the author. The exposition reveals the rich dialogue between abstraction and the image in her work, paying special attention to how D'Holllander convincingly conveyed memories of the place, light and weather in her small canvases and works on cardboard.
Ilse D'Hollander was born in Belgium, and her work was based on the impressions and places of her native country, in particular, the Flemish village, where she spent the last, most productive years of her life. The paintings of the artist are landscapes, demonstrating graphic and pictorial skill, which captures, holds and often distracts attention.
Ilse D'Hollander committed suicide in 1997 at the age of 28 years. During her life, only one solo exhibition was held, but in the last decade, the artist's works have participated in solo and group expositions in Europe and the United States.% MCEPASTEBIN%
