Original painting by Michelle Harvey


My practice explores storytelling through abstract mixed media layers. As each layer conceals the surface, the next layer is removed to reveal a transformed image. I am influenced by the layers noticed in my everyday landscape and urban architecture. Images come forward and recede. The foreground and background become interchangeable and shapes become abstracted.

I love the history that's left behind. The wonder at how the surface is transformed. I imagine the back story, the time and elements it took for a surface to develop its beautiful aged patina.

This piece is part of a series of 3, each sold separately. As the name suggests, when hung toghether they make each other look better!
