Fine Artist • Michelle Sanger

CV

 
 

Michelle Sanger is a Melbourne based contemporary artist who has been exhibiting since 2005, with 6 solo and numerous group shows as Michelle Sanger & previously as Michelle Giacobello.

Her work has evolved over time, but has always involved a degree of patterning, and a deep affinity to the natural world - often landscape based, but capturing the patterns within it, focusing on negative spaces or unusual but completely natural colours that have been amplified. It’s landscape, but not so much a capture of a vista, as an exploration of the shapes within that vista.
