Michelle’s work takes on a more contemplative feeling with misty tones of grey, aqua, smoke and creme. Painted on wood with multiple glazes, each piece is completed with a highly reflective glossy finish that really catches the eye. These pieces are transportive and relaxing, bringing the viewer to a serene space where dreams take flight.
Michelle Woolley Sauter has been pursuing a splendid atmospheric thematic in her latest work by layering many thin glazes of paint over fresco on canvas and wood to enhance dimensional qualities.
In this continuing series of paintings, Michelle investigates undulation and shifting thresholds in environments and memories. Her technique includes accumulating layers of acrylic emulsion and brush dragging across a chosen substrate. This process allows for slick, waxy surfaces on which to apply the paint with brush, palette knife and rag.
By using additional layers of paint, her glazes and pigment are flooded with vehicle and applied between the layers of emulsion. Blended tones become suspended, enhancing atmospheric and dimensionally textural qualities.
