Containers for Places evokes playful curiosity through deliberate manipulations of color and surface. Bolinger layers shapes, lines and marks to build and disrupt pictorial illusion. Each painting is a unique dialogue, creating a place that words do not aptly describe.
Michelle Bolinger received an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Washington in 2005.
