drunkenmermaid.com is pleased to present recent works from Philadelphia-based artist Michele Kishita.
From Michelle’s website:
“My most recent paintings are inspired by the serenity of Milton Avery’s ocean scenes and Katsushika Hokusai’s depictions of waterfalls and waves. I build up layers of acrylic paint and collage and then work through them with a hand sander to create a weathered or aged look, after which I juxtapose or intermingle silver, gold, or copper leaf, reminiscent of Japanese screens and scroll paintings. In each painting I strive to capture the memory and spirit of the landscape.”
Michele’s work will be on display at the LG Tripp Gallery in Philadelphia in July and at the Flinn Gallery in Greenwich, CT beginning in September. Michele will also be part of the Philadelphia Open Studio Tour this October.
