Join us for the opening reception of CONFIGURATIONS by Michaela Flatley on Sunday July 8th from 5-7pm. As always, wine and light fare will be served.
About the artist:
Michaela Flatley is an abstract painter from Boston. She currently lives and works in Baltimore, where she is getting her Masters of Fine Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
This body of watercolors is part of Flatley’s ongoing exploration of grids and systems. She approaches painting as a geometric or technological puzzle, while accentuating the materiality of the paint and the human qualities of its application.
These paintings reference digital content, while the materiality of the watercolor on the paper prohibits them from being read as digital images. They do not feel machine-made because of the attention paid to the surface and the nuances within the mark making. These systems serve as both an analog for computers and as a reminder of the virtues of a non-digital shared experience.
