Michele Foyer is a visual artist whose thoughtful abstractions address the movement intrinsic to color and its non-linear qualities of relation, resonance and rhyme.
Her paintings on canvas and sculptural paintings made of paper explore how we see and know. She is intrigued by how objects, people and thoughts gather disparate times, places and modes of ordering experience in an often tenuous aggregate. She holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and a BA from UC Berkeley, honors + departmental honors.
Foyer has exhibited throughout the United States and the Bay Area where she lives and works. Her work is included in the White Columns Artist registry, New York, curated by Matthew Higgs. She recently mounted a solo exhibition at Fourth Wall Gallery in Oakland. Later this year, she will exhibit a large paper installation in "Weave, Bundle, Cut + Layer" at Root Division curated by Lisa McCutcheon. In 2022, her work will be shown in "Turning the Page" a four-person show focusing on paper at Sykes Gallery, Millersville University, PA.
Lucid Arts Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Vermont Studio Center and Moulin a Nef in Auvillar France (covid deferred) have awarded her residencies. Lucid Arts Foundation will feature her work in a book about its past residents to be published this winter. Art Practical, SOMArts, and SF Artful Living have covered her work. She has curated 11 exhibitions of contemporary art.
