Michela Martello
brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: Statement My artwork is a reaction to the environment I occupy, with my technique I built up a gesture that always reflect my thought, my emotions, and what dictates them. I wish to express a certain balance and harmony, but I realize that the process that leads to such an experience usually involves the opposite aspects. The artistic path has so many constructiveness/destructiveness elements, which creates a certain weight, this weight is a treasure that forges a body of creativity. I work with mixed media on linen, paper, textile, vintage fabric, wood, walls. My pieces include drawings and paintings as well as collage, sewing, and embroidery. Rather than turning my attention to these domestic forms, I choose instead to make them part of a larger illustrative endeavor, one that draws upon familiar folktales and folk art forms, often with a spiritual and decorative dimension that can be translate on larger dimension from canvas to big murals such as public art . I have always being inspired by the technique of frescos from Giotto to the oldest pigmented murals in the Tibetan Monastery, as well as eastern philosophy, graffiti and western contemporary icons. To achieve a compelling piece of work is important, although the daily practice is the essence. How to make my artwork by making my artwork. the hours spent in my studio, the old and new tools, the routine, the unpredictable source of inspirations, the detour, everything is crucial to that final touch. The funny thing is that I am always unaware of this process at least until the end.
