Statement

Michelle Kaufman's text based conceptual art is currently available from the Flat Files at Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn. Born and raised in New York, she studied Economics at Bryn Mawr College and then worked in business for 20 years. On 9/11/2001, she was on the plane that took off one hour before the one that crashed in Pennsylvania. That day provided her subconscious with indelible proof of our ephemerality. This led her to follow her urge to pursue her art full time in 2007, starting by studying at Hunter College.

Michelle's conceptual art has been chosen for numerous shows around New York, including CurateNYC's "Humans, Words, and Animals," "Cashing Out" at NurtureArt, and Call For Bushwick 2013.

At its core, her work is research based. She reads multidisciplinary treatises about history, evolutionary psychology and biology, ethology, and psychiatry. Michelle allows her thoughts about these works to materialize broadly. She creates text based conceptual art, abstract and figurative paintings, installation art, video, and photographs.
