Acrylic on Canvas

48 x 48 in / 122 x 122 cm


Iskra was the first painting of my new series “Deconstructed Realism”. She was the gateway to my new technique and widened my reality. There are no rules here. She is pure flow and creative experimentation. Inspired by a red headed girl with an autumn background. Oil on canvas 48″ x 48″

Michelle Kohler

Like most artists, my career began as a childhood obsession; An insatiable urge to replicate on paper what I saw with my eyes. My parents, wise enough to see this within me, enrolled me in private art classes in my early adolescent year. After 3 years of private instruction, my desire and progress led me to study for 5 more years at Hugo Naude Art Center in Worcester, South Africa. After graduating, with a new disciplined approach, I felt compelled to pursue structure. Namely, facial structure. So I drew face after face, and attended many live-model classes. After a while, my own perspective began to emerge in my otherwise purist portraiture constructions. This of course came from confidence emboldened by years of disciplined construction. Flashing forward a few years, and a handful of domestic and international exhibits, I am now coming full circle as an artist with my own unique, creative sensibilities-and a portraiture constructionist. My new work captures the subjectivity of shape abstraction and color relationship, along with the disciplined objectivity of human portraiture.
