ARTIST | Michela Sorrentino
Michela Sorrentino juxtaposes bold design and unusual color combinations with dramatic mark making and unique symbols that reflect an intuitive style of working. She combines layers of marks with larger organic or architectural shapes as well as graffiti inspired typography that recalls a language without being too literal. The abstract images that form her art are symbols for what interests the artist in her every-day life. The artist studied Fine Art at Capilano University and continued her studies at Les Beaux Arts in Paris. Sorrentino lives and works in British Columbia, Canada.
In the painting Time Out, bold and energetic black strokes contrast the bright yellow painted marks on the stark white of the canvas. One of the yellow marks is painted in the form of the letter "T" as in to say "Time Out". The artists marks are made with paint and graphite in quick, gestural marks to record a fleeting thought or maybe a passage in time. Sometimes the marks are delicate pencil lines or paint that is smeared or erased, while others are dense with paint and intensity to give contrast and drama to the painting.
