Straitjacket: November 12th to 27th 2022
My third solo show opened this week in Newcastle, NSW at new gallery Straitjacket, run by Ahn Wells and Dino Consalvo. I have been a represented artist with Ahn for several years now and it is such a delight to have my show in their amazing new space built by Dino himself.
From a rain-soaked earth life unfurls in a carpet of green that jostles, crowds and pushes up to sky. The sun bakes and the fires come to scorch the landscape into colours of black, midnight blue and the dusting of pale ashes. The arid interior of Australia is alive in the extremes of the seasons. Michelle brings this to life between the wet and the ashen ground, following her recent travels throughout the Northern Territory.
