Irène Bapile — Congo

Celebrating textiles as a medium for creative expression, Irène Bapile uses colors, line and form much as a poet employs words to convey a particular emotion or idea.  As in poetry, the images are meant to resonate, being both themselves and something they may suggest to the viewer.

The works transcend the impersonal objectivity of geometric abstraction through the sensuousness of materials with which they are constructed revealing a blend of reason and passion which reflects the artist's nature.
