Don’t miss it!
Michele Landel creates beautifully eerie patchwork paintings using photographs, fabric, paper, and thread. She stitches over figures, cut flowers, and domesticated spaces to evoke symbols of power, loss, and memory. Mirroring and shadows are also often repeated to show self-awareness and internal worlds. Drawing on the intimacy associated with stained and mended secondhand bedsheets and the machine embroidery connected with craft, her artwork references the domestic while also deliberately distancing itself from traditional fiber arts.
Michelle Landel (US) is an American artist who lives and works in Sèvres, France. She holds degrees in Fine Arts and Art History. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout Europe and the US. She is currently represented by the Ségolène Brossette Galerie in Paris, Le Salon Vert Gallery in Geneva, and the Muriel Guepin Gallery in NYC.
