Don’t miss the opening reception for Michele Norris’ exhibition, The Good Earth, on Monday, June 7 at Market Street Bar and Grill in the Hyatt Regency Reston from 5-7pm.

Enjoy Michele’s artist statement:

I am inspired by the natural world. In my current landscape work the land is a departure point, a place to jump off. The landscape moves beyond simply the illustration of an actual location and begins to symbolize thought, emotion and energy.

When I am painting the physicality of the process propels me. A journey has begun. Marks of the palette knife, drips of paint and brush strokes are evidence of my labor and process.

I paint in acrylic and oil on panel and canvas. I also use my own handprinted papers in my work. Through a process of reduction and addition, layering and scraping, I enjoy creating interesting and opposing textures. Most of all I enjoy the daily process and ritual of putting pencil to paper, brush to canvas and turning my visions to reality.
