New Exhibit @ 459 W 14th Street, NYC.
Stella Michaels is a contemporary abstract expressionist painter, who has been described as a channel of the past traveling on a highway to the future; a medium between people and paintings. Her application of colors and textures, through varied techniques, coupled with a pop-art presentation and her signature rock 'n roll swagger, has garnered accolades from art collectors the world over. Her work has been likened to Pollack, Miro, Kandinsky, and Rothko, flowing with energy, rhythm and texture; and to the art of East Asian painters, with an abundance of rich color and delicate detail. Her pieces are rarely predetermined; the blank surfaces, colors and tools are spontaneously meditated upon. Then she creates the visual as a cliff note to the reckless, yet ultimately choreographed dance that gives life to the raw canvas. The work ranges from a soothing string concerto to house-mix bass and drum trance to one fat guitar riff blasting out of an overdriven amplifier. The paintings and the titles tell the stories of a life spent on the road less traveled.
