Breaking Out by Mishel Schwartz, Alcohol Ink on Yupo Paper
12" x 12"
Mishel Schwartz is a Toronto, Ontario based abstract artist, known for creating pieces with captivating colours, rich, complex detail and multi-textured elements. Through her work she strives to find balance between the need for control and the desire for freedom.
Her primary inspiration comes from the organic world and the undeniable lure of nature. Using the dynamic interplay of light and shadow, she alludes to the sights, smells and shapes of all living things in the abstract, enabling the viewer to interpret its form and meaning.
Through what she calls ‘the mysterious fluidity of alcohol ink, she has uncovered a gorgeous malleability that allows her to delve deeply and add complexity to each element. Through experimentation she has developed a layering and carving technique that has become her signature in every piece.
