YOUR BASKET IS EMPTY


Michelle Hold

My work is an exploration of the abstract, like dance gestures and the vibrations of color. Light, movement, nature, thoughts and new spirituality with scientific grounding are essential to my work.
Since color is light, it is my first choice when I start my painting to connect instantly with the viewer. My knowledge about color comes from my experience in textile design knowing a small alteration of color tone can change the whole mood of a collection. Next comes a gesture, a sort of dance, an impulse, an expression of energy. I believe that this is ultimately the energy you read in a painting, the force or, on the contrary, the softness of the brushstroke that captures your attention. My background of studying architecture made me also a constructor. Layer by layer the painting grows, refining what you can barely see, accentuating, canceling, for in the end, I want the viewer to feel intrigued by what they see without necessarily understanding it. I like the element of mystery, because that’s what life is, mysterious. So I play a lot with transparency. I have a fascination in things I do not completely apprehend, things that are strange, which are disguises perhaps and might resemble something you know very well.
And that’s my mission, to make the viewer feel, to pull him into the canvas with colors and let his emotions take over, to re-interrupt his daily routine, to lead him to see something he knows in a different way, and discover by transmitting power through color and gesture.
I see my painting as a filter of what goes on in the world and the events that surround me, a reflection of reality, distilled through my experience, into abstraction.
