MICHELE LECLAIRE

Artist Statement

I make paintings because I love images and the process of creating. However I hope by closely examining thoughts on family, erosion of memory, the shape of space a person leaves behind, and even the imagination of childhood, that I am creating something universal. 

   The surface of mylar recalls the slick surface of photographs. I build up the surface, sand it down and build it up again. In the process of working, time and history, as well as deterioration of image enrich the surface and breathe life into the work.
