Artist statement

Michelle Thibault is a visual artist that uses encaustic to give life to paintings and decorative objects. The aesthetic concept of wabi sabi guides her art. She wants to evoke melancholy, solitude, dissymmetry, alteration by time that are components of this philosophy. For her beauty is imperfect and modest.

She used acrylic until recently but encaustic offers her a larger mean of expression and allows her to explore dimensional objects.

Her art is simple, minimalist and unique. She lets the beauty of the medium dominate and fire guiding her gestures, it is the fusion of the artist to her mean of expression, they are one.
