MichelLE AVERY KONCZYK // LES FLEURS

solo exhibition

June 1st - 28th, 2018

“My sister briefly mentioned baby’s breath as the ‘filler-flower’ and I immediately felt no flower or two words have ever described me or my life more. I wanted my new series to branch off of this sentiment; the idea of being that something or someone could be considered a ‘filler-flower”

Les Fleurs is the second solo show from Philadelphia watercolorist Michelle Avery. Throughout the collection highly rendered figures blur out into faded lines, representing the force or pull of collected memories as a lingering and permanent part of the subject, almost resembling a barcode - it’s not a coincidence, as life goes on these memories and experiences become the very fabric of who we are, who we were, and everything you’re meant to be.

Like with her past works, Michelle intends to use each piece as a portal into a different world, the framing and shapes of each painting is deliberate and unusual, with reoccurring ‘keyholes’ filled with eyes and ears and baby’s breath, meant to be the things around us and an ever present sense that we are never really alone.
