about this work
Mixed Feelings (2014) is a unique variation (in colour and image) of 20 varnished three-layer silkscreen prints. They are extremely delicate and inspired by her short 16mm film Celebration (2013). For this edition, Isabelle extracted two animated images from Disney cartoons and mixed them with compositions of solarized objects. In this sense, both the cartoon images and the objects are found ready-made, reflecting the superposition and transparencies in the movie.
about Isabelle Cornaro
Isabelle Cornaro employs painting, sculpture, installation, and film in her quest to challenge the way viewers perceive reality, dictated historically and culturally.
