Good news, 2003, flashe on panel, 45.5 x 40.5 cm
In these tragic times we all need some good news, and that is exactly what you will find at Niagara Galleries in April.
The paintings of Chicago-based artist Michelle Grabner remind us that there is still goodness and beauty and light in the world. Pastel rainbows shimmer beneath the post-modern grid.
Fluorescent dots pierce the white veils of acrylic paint like sunlight through a curtain.
Grabner is also an active curator, writer and teacher of art and has an extensive exhibition history in the US, England and Europe.
This is the first time Grabner's work has been shown in Australia, and gallery director, Bill Nuttall is thrilled that Michelle will be in Melbourne for the opening on Tuesday 8 April. Whilst here she will also be conducting an Art Forum for the Victorian College of the Arts on Friday 11 April 2003.
Michelle is available for media interviews until 11 April 2003.
