THE CLOTH COLLECTION (Solo)
‘THE CLOTH COLLECTION’
11th Oct - Nov 12th 2017
"Sam Michelle is a Melbourne painter whose intimate paintings make a strong impact. Her new series, The Cloth Collection, is inspired by the gathering of flowers, ceramics and her growing collection of textiles.
Sam Michelle is among a younger generation of artists whose works engage both emerging and established collectors. They have featured widely in print and online and the demand for her work is high.
1st Sep - 11th Sep 2017
KAB Gallery, Terrigal
"While the perennially popular subject of still life typically depicts various inanimate objects, Sam Michelle’s eye for detail and talented brush makes her work unique. Sam Michelle will be bringing together her love of floral bouquets and collected vessels for her newest series of still
life paintings. While Sam Michelle is no stranger to the genre of still life, this new thematic series presented exclusively at KAB Gallery is new and unseen. The series features a unique and sophisticated coastal palette depicting her favourite things. Audiences will enjoy “the little
things” such as Sam Michelle’s personal collection of contemporary ceramic vessels, trinkets and exquisite floral arrangements".

"Sam Michelle is a New Zealand born artist who has lived in Melbourne since 2001. Painting from her Mornington studio, Sam draws inspiration from music, art and interiors that give her a sense of joy. Sam is interested in how this occurs in art, and how content and colour can trigger memories or simply a feeling within.
Flourish explores her love of the still life genre, combining a warm, soft colour palette with her love of ceramics, flowers, textiles and paint. Sam aims for her works to elicit a strong feeling of calmness or a sudden beautiful moment of nostalgia.
After Sam’s sell out success as part of the Life Still group show at Saint in November 2016, Flourish will be Sam’s highly anticipated first solo show"
