About Maggie Michael

Maggie Michael’s paintings mediate double entendres between existential, linguistic, and political unions. Hailed for bringing a contemporary spin to the Abstract Expressionist movement pioneered in the 1950s, Michael’s works are known for their delicate balance of dynamism and control, as the artist creates an surprising sense of resolution with her striking colors and strokes. Though her career began with poured latex paint, Michael now includes mediums such as spray paint, enamel, charcoal, and ink.
