Michelle Selway Lampard – Hybrid
Hosted By 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace
October 16th - November 9th, 2021
Currently living and working in rural Victoria, self-taught painter Michelle Selway Lampard approaches her subject from a simplistic yet slightly abstracted perspective.
A self-confessed people watcher, Michelle enjoys capturing even the most basic of human form, behaviour and mannerisms with a sense of drama through her use of bold colours, shapes and often a generous application of negative space. Her artworks are a representation of her own experiences and encounters and although stemming from only a brief moment in time, they encourage the viewer to consider the greater picture and form their own emotional interpretation.
About this exhibition Michelle says: “Having recently relocated to a 300 acre Australian bush property in rural Victoria, inspiration for this small collection has been drawn from my daily experiences with both wild and domesticated fauna and of course an abundance of space.”
