This collection of work is a stripping away of distraction and a framing of light and silence. ‘Atmospheres and Stability’ explores the sky as a flat and opaque workspace to investigate the patterns and spaces that shape our everyday activities and decisions. It focuses on moments of transition, the rhythms of patterns, the (in)visibility of space, simultaneously moving and still.
With a background in time-based media, Michelle Eskola approaches colour brightness and saturation with a screen-based mindset. The properties and possibilities of dense pigment on cotton paper are examined through a process of reductive editing, cropping, and combining.
This process aims to elude the viewer, to transform a private psychic state into a spatial state of affective perception; a state of climate conditions and atmospheres, balanced in the air and felt in the islands of the body.
