Paintings by Michelle Hinebrook

May 07, 2015

Michelle Hinebrook's paintings are infused with an understanding of optics and geometry as well as painterly intuition. Attempting to capture movement, within a deep, dynamic space with kaleidoscopic explosions of color and shape. She begins constructing compositions using a computer, ruler and airbrush, drawing hard-edge geometric shapes. She then balances these hard-edge elements with hand-drawn lines, painted fragments and loose gestures, this process reveals subtle manipulations in surface and texture.

"I’d like the viewer to have an experience of the infinite, to peer into the mysterious networks of shapes and have a moment when the borders of the painting fall away a little, leaving them in a visionary, reflective state of mind."
