MICHELLE USSHER: THE APPROACH 

 
I’m attracted to the intangible, to the possibility of multiple ideas existing together that are open in their curiosity.
 
Manifesting into paintings, drawings, porcelain sculptures and large scale wall-drawings, my work exploits the pleasure of fictional narratives and the indulgent enjoyment of serendipity. Concurrent with imagining and making I write stories that I use to bring together seemingly disparate ideas and references. The stories are conceptual models informing the work as it is made, as the work then re-informs the story that is in turn adapted. I’m attracted to the intangible, to the possibility of multiple ideas existing together that are open in their curiosity, rather than offering a closed definition.
