Isabelle – Room 310 – Yonatan Herschfeild
The idea being expressed in this fresco painting “Isabelle” is that of Sinner/Saint.
In the painting, which hangs from the ceiling of the room, you will see the figure of the Holy Maria going up to heaven, yet you can also images of dogs and that of another woman, Isabelle. It is stated in the bible that Isabelle was thrown to the dogs because of her religious beliefs and was thus cast as a sinner.
The artist is also expressing his beliefs of the tense relationship between western culture and local culture. He is further articulating this point by painting his artwork in a non realistic technique , which then creates more tension in the work.
