Michelle Eskola’s practice explores the abstract sublime. Often incorporating repetitious iconography and labour intensive techniques, her work sits on the threshold between abstraction and conceptualism. What appears to be pure painting, on closer investigation, reveals an active space that combines personal experience with larger cultural influences.
Michelle completed an Honours Degree in Fine Arts, Visual Arts Practice at the Queensland University of Technology (2008), and a Post Graduate Diploma in Visual Arts (2014) at TAFE Queensland. She has exhibited extensively both locally and nationally and is the exhibiting artist in residence at the Museum of Brisbane. Her works feature in public collections including Gadens Lawyers, and Mater Hospital collections, in addition to many private and corporate collections throughout Australia.
