"Turbulences 16" is an oniric and illusionistic painting which solicits our visual perception and offers a discoverable lattice of motifs emerging out of defacement and obscuration.
This painting is on a cradled wood panel with clean natural wood edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang, and can be displayed vertically or horizontally.
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.
