Mediaeval Wood Construction, Winter 2014
At 12x8', this piece honors the severity of Mediaeval Architecture in both scale and aesthetic. As is typical of Michelle's work, Mediaeval Wood Construction gets its substantial thickness and weight from its constituent reclaimed wood. Mediaeval Wood Construction is made up of six 4' square panels, and is a featured work in Michelle's current solo show at Longview Gallery in Washington D.C.
Selected Works, Winter 2014
Urbanscape series, 2014
Created in the fall of 2014, Urbanscape series is a collection of literally massive works. At around 80" wide, 30" tall, and up to 7" thick, and with steel french-cleat supports, these pieces push the limits of "two-dimensional sculpture" and each feature a particular grain, flow, or topography of their own.
The X's, 2014
The x's shown below measure 24"x24". Typical of Michelle's work, these pieces are constructed from reclaimed wood. While some are more continuous with the humming aesthetic of their prodigious ancestor, many embark on new territory; colorful staircase railings, antique rulers, and stenciled characters auto-tribute their origins. Measuring as thick as 3" they are as sculptural as they are two dimensional.
