"Annette Isbey's long life in art has given us paintings of allegorical depth and a monumental style in their treatment of subject matter. The silence in her landscapes and figures is not empty, but full. These presences have a kind of resonance, a meaning that things in themselves can tell us without words" - Denys Trussell, poet.
