Friday, May 3: Michelle Oosterbaan- Margins of Midnight

Artspace Liberti is proud to present its May-June exhibition, Margins of Midnight, a wall installation by Michelle Oosterbaan. This exhibition runs from May 3 – June 30, 2013. The reception for Ms. Oosterbaan will be held on Friday, May 3, from 6:30-9:30PM.

Margins of Midnight is a site-specific wall painting experiment. The installation on the 45’ wall Artspace Liberti is a hybrid of paper paintings and hand-mixed industrial color geared to investigate signs and symbols emblematic of transition. The piece is based off Oosterbaan’s memories of Icelandic skies that triggered her interest in its conflicting concepts of stillness and motion, glowing light versus dense darkness and shifts in scale and space.

Michelle Oosterbaan has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe as well as attending residencies in The Netherlands, France and Iceland. She has had solo shows at Gallery Joe in Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis. She has also exhibited work at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC and the Drawing Center in New York.
