Michele Bonelli is a NYC based artist whose essence
of Art is intrinsically rooted in the process
of art making. It is an introspective methodology incorporating
the conceptual ideas derived from both life experience
and an Undergraduate Degree in Studio Art, an MFA in Painting,
plus numerous years of formal art studies.
the imagery of Bonellis paintings are intended two-dimensional
microcosms of sights, sounds, and rhythms governing an
array of subject matter from landscapes to still life
expressed in the abstract, they are at their core an ongoing
examination and exploration of the principles of the making
of 20th Century Abstract Art. The paintings are the product
of a synthesis of styles as expressed visually in the
contemporary traditions of Pop Art, which evolved from
Cubism. What is derived from this process is not about
the experience of making art, but rather what comes out
of the experience.
