"When I am painting, I feel connected to something greater than myself and it is in these moments that I feel most alive and, consequently, most at peace."
Mishel Schwartz is a Toronto, Ontario based artist, known for creating pieces with captivating colours, rich, complex detail and multi-textured elements. Through her work she strives to find balance between the need for control and the desire for freedom.
Her primary inspiration comes from the organic world and the undeniable lure of nature. using the dynamic interplay of light and shadow, she alludes to the sights, smells and shapes of all living things in the abstract, enabling the viewer to interpret its form and meaning.
Through what she calls 'the mysterious fluidity of alcohol ink, she has uncovered a gorgeous malleability that allows her to delve deeply and add complexity to each element. Through experimentation she has developed a layering and carving technique that has become her signature in every piece.
Mishel spends endless hours in her studio painting, working on commissioned pieces and developing a body of work for future shows. She has participated in several exhibitions around the world as well as collaborating on various projects.
