Rene Micheli Photography

“Her eye finds something in each scenario.  The images are alternatively reminiscent of old daguerreotypes, the Dutch Masters, Egon Shiele, Cindy Sherman.  She arranges, finds the most revelatory pose.  Women come to life as flowers, ethereal creatures brought up from the earth.  A young child becomes a goldfish.  There is a childlike quality, a fairybook realm, mildly sinister, that opens like an aperture inside the mind of her work.  A silent confidence exudes from her subjects.  When Micheli photographs she is as mesmerized by the space between the arms or the gesture of hands—the hands in her photographs often seem like dancers, by turns delicate, frightened, strong—as by the muted cool-grey blues and warm pinks of natural light that fill her studio like lacy cellophane. To Micheli, composition is the space around the body that creates a certain poetry that allows form to float over the page.  She is a believer in narrative.  Story is experience. Characters inhabit her worlds where spells are cast by the camera.  They are bound and caught and they are set free.” website: www.renemicheli.com
