Art Incubator Debut Contemporary London, 2014
Art is my life and passion.
My work is based on capturing the essence of feelings, emotions and the invisible, eternal energy that pervades in the universe, focusing on beauty and it’s scarcity in current time.
I am inspired by nature and new science that meets spirituality.
Creating from a place of no time , no space no body.
Like an architect I love to construct the images with multiple layering, but at the same time leaving space for surprise, for something unexpected to happen, where my dance like gestures encounter the vibrations of color.
Color is vital to convey my message of harmony and wellbeing and I am interested in the perception of space and emotion through the equilibrated use of color, which I have trained while working in textile design.
I aim to offer the spectators a view into special moments of time where all is possible and like my creations to enchant, add to wellbeing and open the mind.
My studio is close to Milan, an hour from Malpensa airport.
Samir Ceric, CEO Debut Contemporary :" Michelle is an accomplished colorist , thanks to her experience in the world of fashion her color palette and compositions reveal an exquisite sensitivity for light and space."
Barry Martin: "Michelle Hold is an artist who has made her mark as abstract painter, and carved out an identity for herselve. She shamelessly makes vibrant, dynamic, polychromatic, colourful, resourceful, meaningful, strong, sometimes large- sized paintings, that invigorate, excite and inspire. She panders neither to taste ( except of course her own), nor current fads, or the kind of eye-catching, voguish, detritus that currently passes as art, and which is poured out by the ton in every arts quarter of the world!"
