“The organic or biomorphic feeling beats strongly in Isabel's pictorial work. In each of her works there are glimpses of human figures, animals or parts of them with a strong symbolic function. Unlike geometric abstraction, which is dogmatic and rigid in its concepts, organic abstraction seeks fluidity, curved lines, rounded shapes and poetic freedom, desiring separation from reality”
"Talking about the work of Isabel Brinck, is something like strolling between the rulers of a storybook, where the visual texture of the words is confused with the fabric that their images form on the canvas. Stories ranging from the experience stored in memory, to the immediate experience that respects the feeling of the thoughts of the moment of pictorial execution. Moments and feelings that are not afraid of color or humor, saturate the format creating a literary texture linked to the world of dreams and desires.
To speak of Brinck's painting is to expose oneself to sharing his personal, if not private, experience of a reality constructed today by a woman from the beginning of the 21st century in America."

"Clearly, her work is a reflection of what psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi would call ” a state of flow”, when the development of an activity that allows the person to be completely absorbed for his own pleasure and enjoyment, activity where time flies and actions, thoughts and movements succeed each other without pause. The whole being is involved in this activity, and the person using their skills and abilities leading them to the end ."
Roberto Vega Masso

“Isabel’s art is built around color and evolving space, where she develops a language of figures charged with sensuality and subtlety. Her bright and controlled use of color is her personal touch with which she builds diverse scenes where the feminine theme is presented as a dance of elements that touch the figurative and at the same time swirl around the intangible.”
"Your art is a calligraphy, a cursive letter from your spiritual communions, from your free feelings"
"You have made me a deep and passionate admirer of your line, symbolism, images, and technique. The work that you offer us consumes me in the passion that it transmits; in such a way that it leaves me defenseless before the intensity of the emotions of his message. Also, in your titles you can summarize its contents, each one I like more than the last. I enjoy your work in such a way that I feel deprived of any critical analysis, as if my mind was clouded by such enjoyment, such pleasure. Once again thank you for your work, for letting me get to know you a little through it, and for inviting me to your next inauguration. I count the hours in being able to see them live after so many months of cyber images".
University of Miami
"However, your work reveals a cathartic approach to satisfying your existence."
"Visual images perhaps of poetic images imagined in the dreams of the color palette that the artist resolves in a remarkable way, to instantaneous playful realities imagined of a sweet chaos, of a round trip of labyrinthine dreams, dreamlike spaces of the man and the woman who inhabits them, perhaps small fleeting or unreal moments, dreamed on the eve of sleeplessness or sleepless night.
Colors that spin shapes, unveiled creatures, imagined of a reality that does not contain time, images that are revealed, appear phantasmagoric and that still dream, settle in the mind so as not to be blank, to paint dreams, before forget us".
Marcela Albornoz Dachelet

"Your painting is tuning for continuous, sinuous, undulating waves. Your painting is so seductive that things happen inside you and make you want to see it over and over again, that without realizing it, you are already conquered and you only want what the painting wants to be: to be contemplated.
"Your painting is a tribute to the outdoors and a meeting in full color of poets, musicians and painters, inspired by the ethereal muse. The objective is to swallow in one go, the exuberant contrasts of the
well-known leaders: red, blue and yellow".
"Isabel Brinck's painting moves between the "new figuration" and the current Chilean and Latin American painting, especially Roberto Matta's art , one of the most important references in her work. However, she explores the feminine within this figuration, making her work unique. On these foundations she unloads a whole intimate universe, where she touches on themes such as literature, family, sexuality and femininity. In my opinion, we are facing one of the main exponents of Chilean art today".
