Michelle Eskola‘s upcoming exhibition Luminous Plastic explores the intersection of polarities of light, space, abstraction and formation. Employing these elements and processes Eskola considers the role of painting in contemporary digital culture. The series of paintings highlight the correlation between digital image construction and traditional painting methods as Eskola shifts between physical and virtual processes of making.
