19th July to 30th July 2017
Opening Night Wednesday 19th July, 6-8pm
Sam Michelle is a New Zealand born artist who has lived in Melbourne since 2001. Painting from her Mornington studio, Sam draws inspiration from music, art and interiors that give her a sense of joy. Sam is interested in how this occurs in art, and how content and colour can trigger memories or simply a feeling within.
Flourish explores her love of the still life genre, combining a warm, soft colour palette with her love of ceramics, flowers, textiles and paint. Sam aims for her works to elicit a strong feeling of calmness or a sudden beautiful moment of nostalgia.
After Sam’s sell out success as part of the Life Still group show at Saint in November 2016, Flourish will be Sam’s highly anticipated first solo show.
