  • These are poignant, at times strangely quirky entries into a world filled with sharpness, the sense of imminent danger, and a sensual urge that seems to sweep all danger before it. The border between exterior and interior life is diffuse ... one can find oneself in unexpected places.
  • Two little girls in yellow dresses who are never seen again, Jesus and Elvis vacationing in Bermuda, a town after the fair has gone, women showering after a swim, Picasso becoming a red velvet dress: these are just a few of the images conjured in Michelle's first collection.
