“Passages is an exhibition of paintings, prints, and drawings that focuses on liminal spaces in Italian architecture. Medieval archways provide a glimpse into the mystery of sacred spaces, highlighting the way in which they provide a place of convergence between heaven and earth.
Paine draws on her experience of living in Italy to create images which originated in specific places, but speak to the universality of constructed space as a signifier of the divine.”
Michelle Arnold Paine’s architectural paintings of remembered places recall her sojourn in Italy for three years; the buildings she depicts are not only representations of actual locales, but also subconsciously familiar evocations of imagined sacred spaces. Her figurative drawings similarly explore the dichotomy of identity—universal and unique, spiritual and physical—through deliberately intangible portrayals of named models.
