ARTIST STATEMENT:  MICHELLE DUBOIS
I am a Mt Keira artist, born in Wollongong, and living beneath the
escarpment for almost 30 years. Over the past 15 years, I have
participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions around the
Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands.
For the most part, I consider myself an Intuitive, Mixed Media Artist.
Rarely planning what I am going to paint, but rather allowing the
artwork to speak for itself and direct me, long after the first layers
are on the canvas. I can often be surprised by the outcome… but it’s a
wonderful, freeing way of painting, and the process can be cathartic
and soul searching.
Inspiration comes from many sources, including environment, childhood,
life experiences and memories. My paintings can be a symbolic, or
nostalgic journey… an Imagined Dreamscape! They challenge me,
encouraging me to look at things in lateral ways. Not just to see
something as it is, or was… but for what it could be, what I imagine,
and how it makes me feel.
My most recent artworks happen to be figurative. However, I do have a
long and fond relationship with Interiors, Still Life and Abstracted
Landscapes. The latter occasionally presenting itself in the form of
backgrounds for my figurative paintings.
As an artist, I am emerging… developing, playing and creating!
