Weaver Room Gallery, 2nd Floor
By Michelle Osman
My paintings are temporal narratives that capture and create a moment. They draw from, build upon and illustrate subjects and ideas of our cultural history. For me the subject must refer to something over and beyond its manifest self; the poignancy of headlights under the storm; the details and flesh of our inner emotions; our imagined selves. I use the figure to convey the emptiness of a night, the blue solitude of being submerged.
