"Turbulence 6" explores an ethereal hybridization of chance and abstract expressionism with linear, hard-edge geometry. The end result is a dynamic and discoverable grid imagery that engages our visual perception through the play of iridescence and optical effects. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Melisa

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.
