Michele Dangelo exhibition and video
August 15-21, 2020 | 25 Commercial Street, Wellfleet
My work is collected by many who feel that everyday objects ignite imagination and create a sense of connectivity. Because the forms are more conceptual than real they reflect the ambiguous and evoke ambivalence triggering a longing for pleasure, comfort, security and permanence.
I remain challenged by the notions of free expression and a distinct hand to create work that has more to do with the viewer’s perception than my intention. - Michele Dangelo

I spend significant time finding the correct color or shade to convey a specific feeling because to me color is not just color, it is revealing - one's blue is another's yellow. To evoke emotion and self-reflection I push color stereotypes, at times using orange to trigger a pensive response or red to subdue rather than ignite. Palette knives, rags and other materials add texture and depth to my choice of color, creating an interesting surface that denies specifics yet suggest place, time and attitude.
And visit us! We are open 10-6 daily in Wellfleet and Orleans.
