About The Artwork

I used to hang out on occasion with some friends that owned a custom racing shop. I was intrigued the way the colors swirled around gaskets soaking in a bucket. I asked if I could have some of the used pieces and this piece emerged. This was back when interference and iridescent were just starting so I loved playing around with those materials.

Beginning as a makeup artist, I soon began to paint canvases. Africa and her indigenous people, the music, dance and art inspired my work throughout the years which gives my art a grounding element, touching humanity. Large sculptured masks on canvas emerged which later evolved into my bold series, RISE. Today I create multi layered canvases with tiers and wire constructs adding more layers and blends of paint combined with matte, lumenescence and resin. Obscure faces, figures and scenes reminicent of ancient times that morph and alter with lighting and shifts of ones gaze appear. Ontological inqueries of existence inspire my work, with a passion for the study of space time and the possibilitiy of the existence of other dimensions and cosmic time travel. Questions of life and death linger. Research and education into the latest scientific theories by physicists, scientists and astronomers plus discoveries by the Hadron Collider and The James Webb Telescope combined with my own insights, has prompted an urgent desire to translate these abstract concepts into visual narratives. I implore the viewer to contemplate and spark their curiousity while I provide a visual pathway to the worlds of the intricate unknown using interference, textures, plexiglass, wire and mirror to give sustenance and form to these abstruse theories that merge science, philosophy and art. “SHRED the BOX” - Melissa Libutti
