A Call to Armas
Painter Michelle Armas lasted one year in the stressful world of corporate branding in New York before she decamped back to Atlanta to pursue a career in abstract painting. Her large scale acrylics are vibrant, bold, and youthful, the hipster offspring of Richard Diebenkorn and Jackson Pollock. In a recent posting on her blog about a commission she is completing for a very symmetrical bedroom, she describes her creative process in endearingly straightforward terms: “I think there should be big shapes, lots of layering but chunky and scribbly to balance the linear-ness all over the place.” Visit her blog to see the result.
