Michele Marcoux is a painter working mainly in oil and acrylic on paper, board, canvas and collaged images. Her paintings derive from photographs and observational drawings of natural forms/landscape, industrial spaces and figures, which are collaged and used as a resource. Sometimes the idea is to create an allegory or story from the collaged images other times the paintings are a meditation on space and memory – ‘Creating a memory space but one that is based on reality’. She is also interested in Louise Bourgeois’ observation that ‘Architectural space projects psychological states’ and how this could be related to painting. Recent work involves the use of collaged images from art history (Turner and Corot landscapes) which are painted over, scribed into and cut away to uncover landscape space and archaic forms reflecting a personal mythology.
