Guest studio 1: Michelle Oosterbaan (US)



With my time here @ DCR I am investigating defining some relationships of space, color, and light with the aim to evoke a sense of place and proximity. I am making models, exploring abstraction and the theatre of space, in the studio built from found, folded, and cut papers and gouache paint. As the models move into the three dimensions, on the wall and off the table, I am finding more interest in how the body interacts with hints of abstraction in perspective. It suggests to me now ideas of location and dislocation, while I move planes of color around the studio from wall to wall.
