Serene, intriguing, mystical, powerful. These are the emotions and impressions typically evoked by the multifaceted artist Michael Quellier. Since early childhood, Michael was drawn to art though sketching, painting and a fascination with various mediums. During his early years in central Minnesota, his love of art and emerging talent lead to Michael winning numerous contests, awards and ultimately several scholarships. Michael gained inspiration from artists including Salvador Dali, Picasso and Tamara de Lempicka while exploring various styles.
Michael’s abstract art can be described as a series of bold and mystical worlds on canvas or panel. His various forms, spread in translucent layers, intersect energetic pools of bold color or gray-scale hues over complex textures, just as thought and emotion interact in the realms of consciousness. The beauty of a Quellier abstract reveals a carefully orchestrated contrast of chaos and structure, a result and influence of esoteric studies from various New Age Spiritualists and Metaphysical Teachers.
In Michael’s words, “The canvas is an exploration of polarity, where chaos resists the boundaries of structure. The result is a beautiful symbiosis of these diametric forces. What evolves is part random manifestation of spontaneity of free form and texture within the intention of structured color and composition. The art is a visual conversation between the head and the heart. The dance of logic with emotion. We all have various appetites; I find that painting feeds my constant compulsion to create. Joy is experienced when each viewer shares their individual interpretation of a piece as I find that we are all energetic filters, co-creating our unique experience of consciousness.”
