Mixed-Media Work by Michelle Firment Reid • Empty Mirror

A multidisciplinary artist, I choose the medium I feel best conveys my concept and intent. I express my emotions as a visual narrative open to interpretation; not at all fixed, but with the desire to impress onto the viewer to have his or her own personal connection and inference. Inspired by nature, personal experience, and science, I am interested in the connection of humankind and nature’s elements.

In my paintings I convey thought through asemic writing, a wordless open form of writing allowing the viewer to hover in a state between reflecting on their own interpretation while simultaneously seeing the work. Throughout my installation and sculpture works I am interested in the emotional and sensual qualities of the materials I use more than I am in their formal qualities. I feel thought and language is a part of the atmosphere around us — released into air and formed into the material world.

I am highly committed to the art process and enjoy taking risks experimenting with a range of mediums and materials. All of my best ideas come out of process, out of the work itself.
