Tine Isachsen's Heat Climbs the Body explores the duality between darkness and inexplicable beauty. Her paintings, raw in style and emotive in tone, uncover the endless love Isachsen holds for the physicality of print, the process of painting and passion for making sensual artworks. Accompanying the book's release is also a 'dark' soundtrack, composed by Italian sound artist Omar Contri which can be downloaded here once Heat Climbs the Body is purchased.
Over the years, Isachsen's uniquely expressive and surrealist style has cultivated international attention, culminating in film festivals across Europe, including various exhibitions in London, New York, Oslo, Venice and Stockholm. Her eye for texture, form and rich colours has also resulted in her contributing to the world of fashion illustration, where we invited her a couple of years ago as part of our S/S 17 menswear fashion illustration coverage to reimagine the works of fashion houses Prada, Versace and Jil Sander, turning each collection's designs into spell-bounding illustrations, straight from Milana Moda Uomo.
It's no doubt that Isachsen has formed a broad body of work over her years as an active illustrator, with a self-proclaimed love of the tangibility that making art offers; what's better than to portray this love through a tangible and physical book. Made with love and filled with sensual illustrations, the work of Isachsen undeniably speaks for itself. Heat Climbs the Body, is available to buy now, here.
