On the one hand, the artist incorporates her well-know style of ‘kaleidoscopic nature‘, in which she masters perfectly symmetrical shapes that she repeats identically. On the other hand, she allows her recent and intuitive approach of ‘acclimatation‘, using less controlled and more painterly character, merge into her work. The reference to the boro tradition, is presented through cut out of different fragments from preexisting canvases, which are sewed together to a symmetric art work. She superimposes and supplements the phyllotaxic elements with hand-painted brushstrokes according to her mood. It also demonstrates Koralie’s passion and engagement for craftsmanship. Moreover, she found another parallel to boro garments, such as the her predominant color indigo.
The Way of Boro series reunites all of Koralie’s artistic and personal interest: motifs, folklore, indigo, juxtaposition, fragmentation and repetition. Koralie’s artistic approach ranges from popular tradition, to symbolic aesthetics and contemporary ecology. The artist progressively balances the mismatches and ultimately brings life to the paintings through various textures.
Koralie is a sensitive artist, who incorporates personal research, craftsmanship of indigenous cultures and homage to the complex beauty of nature into her versatile work.
