About

Artist Comments
I have been engaging my work with ideas derived from the pictorial works of artists Frank Stella, Sterling Ruby and Gerhard Richter. A synthesis of these interests is materializing in this latest body of work. In City and in Forest ll explores the assimilation of aerosol painting, pyrography and sanding techniques on wood. This ethereal series solicits our visual perception by suggesting a discoverable lattice of motifs emerging out of defacement and obscuration. This piece is lightly varnished with clean natural wood edges and comes ready to hang, horizontal or vertical.

About the Artist
The natural world is the blueprint for Melisa’s work, while allusions to past and contemporary culture inform its development. She approaches her artwork by developing her own hybridization of artistic practices. Melisa relies on commercial tools such as blow torches and electrical sanders to create her work, in addition to other labor-intensive methods. By exploring the assimilation of aerosol painting, pyrography, and sanding on wood, Melisa produces unique abstract art that is simultaneously geometric and organic.
