Michele Sabatier

I consider my paintings intimate portraits of enormous spaces.

Using the metaphor of landscape I explore relationships with time and space outside of everyday experience. Every work of art is a landscape — capturing and recording internal or external experiences.

Because our memories of time and place are more than visual pictures, I rarely use photographic references — preferring instead to allow my work to be intuitive and sense-memory based.

My work is primarily in encaustic. Language and poetry are a part of my process, often lending fragments to paintings as titles.
