I have been engaging my work with aesthetics derived from the pictorial works of artists Jack Whitten, Sterling Ruby and Gerhard Richter. A hybrid synthesis of the notions of repetition, blur and precision is materializing in my latest corpus. This piece explores the assimilation of aerosol painting and pyrography on wood. This ethereal series solicits our visual perception by suggesting a discoverable lattice of motifs emerging out of defacement and obscuration, while evoking an intimate celebration of love.

The piece was made with spray paint, acrylic paint, and pyrography on a cradled wood panel.  It comes ready to hang, either horizontal or vertical, with clean natural wood edges.

Getting to Know Mélisa

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.
