I stumbled upon Michelle Robinson‘s intricate art on Instagram and it was love at first sight. The self-taught artist’s work explores bold contrasts, colour palettes, and patterns as she recreates all that is feminine.

Her figures float gracefully upon an intricate background comprised of over layering rhythmic patterns and tantalizing colour harmonies. natural or unfamiliar, loud or subtle, she creates whimsical interpretations of the human condition using the movement of the female body as her wholly intriguing and revealing device.

On choosing to center her work around the female form:

“There’s something sacred and extremely alluring about the female form: a woman’s capability to change her surroundings with just her nurturing presence and sexuality. There’s something very powerful that a woman holds. It can be subtle or obvious, either way, it’s there. I do believe we hold many truths. We give life and that is power. I paint who I am and who I thrive to be.”

I love, love, love the juxtaposition of colours, and intricate patterns, and shapes, and leaves, and femininity. Beyond being gorgeous, Michelle’s work invites the viewer to partake in a conversation surrounding self-empowerment and enlightenment, identity, sexuality, freedom and much more. It’s amazing and I cannot get enough.
