Artist Michelle Baharier: makes art works to stir up emotions and open your heart. She does this by distorting perspective, to draw you – the viewer – into her raw moods.
Her work stands out as a witness to the human condition through colour, shape and drawing. She works with turmoil and joy depicting life’s emotional dualities. Her creative energy expressed in paintings and drawings full of colour and suggested forms takes the viewer on a journey. Doors open, doors close, corridors and sometimes people or faces emerge.
Baharier channels her energy using many styles that have influenced her approach to making artwork, such as surrealism, abstraction, expressionism, outsider art and art brut.
“Abstract painting “confronts you”, Pollock said in 1950
“I aim to embrace our humanity and vulnerability via the celebration of my own spirit, my life force which drives me” says Baharier.
Michelle Baharier studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and the University of the Arts. She has won a number of prizes including the Julian Sullivan award, Art of Housing, she is a published writer and poet and was the founder of an Arts and Mental Charity. She lives in Camberwell South London
