Michelle Oppenheimer
Over the past 10 years, Michelle Oppenheimer has become well known for composing paintings that capture the imaginative and organic possibilities of abstract watercolor. Her art has been heralded for its calming and therapeutic nature: a true reflection of the artist herself. She is a firm believer in the inspirational and regenerative power of color, texture and design, and taps into the energy of her surroundings to imagine paintings that soothe the soul and foster an environment of peace and relaxation. Just as creating each work of art is a personal journey for the artist, she invites the observer to draw their own connections and embrace each individual painting as their own. As such, she refrains from adding titles to her work that might influence the viewers’ interpretation of the piece. Her art is showcased in Chicago Art Source in addition to Z Gallerie and Macy’s online.
