A balance between aesthetic contemplation and poetic narrative – Michelle Hold’s work is a visible declaration of an archaic language of the soul that is layered, lyrical, euphoric yet pensive energy going far beyond expressionism. The presence or absence of colour hues is a specific way to propel wishes, hopes and dreams. Colour is a living and pulsating entity that offers an agreement between who is painting and who is looking at the canvas, resulting in a profound connection between the inner world of who is looking and the desire of the artist to convey.
Time spent to study architecture has influenced her construction methods, creating images with multiple layering while her experience in the textile industry has formed her equilibrated use of color. Her paintings which vary in size and style are created with 'dance like' gestures. They are dramatic yet peaceful, loud and vibrant with space for quiet contemplation.
The artist has exhibited in solo shows throughout Europe and China, participated in group shows worldwide, and in international art fairs in London, New York, Berlin, Milan, Miami, Athens, Vilnius. Her works are also privately collected around the world.
