Melbourne based artist Michelle Sanger has been exhibiting since 2005 and has had 6 solo and numerous group shows. Michelle is inspired by nature and it is a contast source of reference to her, even though her work involves levels of abstraction. She is also inspired by the works of Edvard Munch, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman and Sidney Nolan. ”I could watch for hours as shadows pass across the ground delighting in the beauty of the lacework revealed, and take endless photographs of lichen on a tree trunk, barnacles on a rock or paint peeling from a wall. To me – that natural visual texture is a feast for the eyes. Many people are too busy to notice that transience in detail, and it can be sumptuous, velvety and so deeply layered. I try to capture that moment in the knowledge that it will never be the same again – the same light, the same leaves, the same footprints will eternally change, which is a miracle don’t you think.” - Michelle Sanger
