Statement
Michele Foyer creates hybrid works that merge collage, sculpture and painting.The works invite viewers to engage with the interplay of painted monochromatic colors and hand-cut shapes which float on luminous fluorescent hues reflected on the wall behind the piece.

Gripped by the mystery of how people, things, cities and ideas exist in the constant flux of the world, she explores these philosophical musings through the sensations of color and shape which move outside of linear language and Platonic form.

While appearing unified at first glance, the sculptural paintings reveal a sly aggregate of colliding sensations, a subtle crazy quilt of disparate elements and methods of organization.The collaged pieces rejoice in this encountered fluidity which allows the new to emerge.

The works float on a glow of color reflected onto the wall from the painted reverse side.Paradoxically, this immaterial and variable light, best seen at the sides, constitutes the true “ground” of the piece.Flaps and collaged patches both reveal and obscure hidden colors, simultaneously encouraging multiple relations and diverse ways to traverse the work.
