michelle stone——-shadows and substance
Human-like forms flex their adaptability to find a habitat .
Thick, dense, textured facades, layered with acrylic paint, and mixed up mediums
Become a metaphor that alludes to dimensions of complexity inherent in people.
Reliefs, paintings, drawings , sculptures, and installations.
Species of creatures relate to each other appearing
as clumps of debris , vestiges of people, animals or hybrid fragments.
They reflect various contextual relationships, solo, connected
In nature, integration continues
Garden detritus, heads, creatures, couples, shadows
Surviving alone, clustered in groups, and battling duos
Climbing walls, laying on floors,
hanging, merging, escaping, melting ,crawling
struggling under impasto, plastic, surface skin
Transforming space- Space transforming them
Emerging as vulnerable figures discussing our human condition.
