About

The series "Mångata" explores the marriage of gestural color-field with exacting stenciled graphics. Built upon a multilayered convergence of aerosol painting, pyrography and hard-edge techniques on wood, this ethereal series solicits our visual perception by suggesting optical motifs emerging out obscuration and shimmering planes. Artists that come to mind when viewing Melisa's work include Agnes Martin, Gerhard Richter, Sterling Ruby, Jack Whitten, Julian Stanczak, Garth Weiser, and Frank Stella. The piece comes ready to hang and is lightly varnished with clean natural wood edges.

She pursued studies in Marine Biology before training in classical art of the Old Masters. She grew fascinated by the works of Flemish painters Vermeer and Rembrandt whose symbolic use of light influences her practice up to this day. Melisa explores the notion of the sublime through blur and precision. She develops an aesthetic of duality by hybridizing divergent approaches to art. Her studio practice is labor-intensive; various instruments and electric tools are used out-of-context to inject unpredictability in the painting gesture. She has assimilated in her practice an eclectic multilayering process combining pyrography, sanding and detailed stencil compositions on wood. Wabi-sabi -embracing chance- is a central idea in her work, equally so is meticulous control. This results in a subterranean tension that jeopardizes the ethereal appearance of her pieces; arbitrariness and mechanical execution fuse to create what she calls "systèmes faillibles" where spectral motifs seek to emerge out of obscuring lattices. Her work has been exhibited internationally and acquired in private and corporate collections across North America and abroad.
