Michelle Hold (b. Munich)
My research goes into the endless energy that pervades the universe, that’s why in my paintings I try to evoke vibrating fields of energy. I am interested in the things that are invisible and cannot easily be apprehended by intellect, because I think that they are the eternal ones. I like to deal with themes of physical science and the cosmos, to tap into the sheer wonder of life at all. For me painting is also a spiritual approach to life. I, therefore, like to celebrate the vision of mystery.
Like an architect I like to construct my paintings layer by layer with high quality acrylics and pigments until I obtain the wanted depth I desire. I use color to immerse the viewer in emotion. Having studied and worked as textile designer, composition and colors are very important to me and the final result has to satisfy my concept of beauty and harmony. Ultimately, it is a sense of equilibrium that I seek, to express a feeling of inner peace and balance for the attainment of a divine state.
