Michelle Michalczik

Phenomenal Abstraction

                                                      at Andrejev Galleries                 


We first took notice of Michelle Michalczik’s abstractions on line over a year ago...and contacted her about exhibiting with us. There’s a number of ways to describe her paintings that in a word are remarkable testaments to creative inner necessity. A woman of very few words, she says, “I have to paint.” What does she paint: all are labor intensive and hand done improvisational pattern motifs; without a focal point they are organismic all-over compositions top to bottom, left to right until the canvas is filled; they have a hand-made intimacy, the scale of which in its repetitive permutations declare Michalczik’s creative commitment to paint; some motifs are graphically flat yet allude to spatial possibilities, some motifs are shaded emphasizing shallow space. It may be a little risky to say they are decorative pattern, they are, and can be ignored as such, and as our concentration shifts into them, they become without a word as textually rich and mysterious as Luis Borges or as visually sublime as Roman Opalka.


Michalczik is a mother of three “suns”…she divides her life between Germany and coastal Spain. When we asked her who she was, she said she was born in East Berlin, that her father was a double agent in her early childhood some of which was spent in NYC…and she never went to an art school. We did say she is a woman of few words and this is what we know. Everything else is a matter of converting metric to inches and Euros to dollars and selling these phenomenal paintings to our clients.
