Michelle Grabner

The work of artist Michelle Grabner.  Grabner currently has a show of new work, Grabner Gingham, on view at Gallery 16 in SF through October 29th.

With a career spanning over 30 years, Michelle Grabner has dedicated herself to identifying, indexing, and transposing patterns. Grabner Gingham is comprised of a series of large-scale oil on burlap paintings. After a decade-long hiatus, the artist is discovering a new relationship to the gingham pattern outside the realm of domesticity. “The gingham paintings are a head on embrace of the cliché, the big, beautiful, and all too general idea that [the pattern] is both overused yet sturdy in its unfailing predictability,” Grabner explains in an interview with ART21.

About her work:  I make art to explore the cross-section of physical, emotional, and spiritual place, and to investigate accumulated layers of memory associated with landscape.
