The first impression of Isabel Le Roux’s art is vibrancy. The courageous use of colour adds to the expressionistic quality of emotion and feeling. She paints life and creates her paintings in the journey of her own life. She is well known for her typical South African scenes, especially those from the Cape, but her travels abroad bring a new dimension to her work.
The be...auty and excitement of her surroundings often inspires her creativity, but, as she states, “I strive to paint more expressionistic and to be more in tune with my feelings than with reality. On occasion, my work is perceived as being colourist, an opinion that I have no difficulty in accepting, since colour is my passion. However, Madame Brunau of the City Internationale des Arts in Paris once said that I do achieve something that artists like Cezanne did and that is to allow the viewer to look through the colour and into the painting.
