…………THIS PROJECT IS about ECOLOGICAL AWARENESS……….
miChelle Vara is a mixed media artist, that uses reclaimed materials as a container for metaphor and memory, exposing conditions for exchange in human awareness and change.
This project uses tar (bitumen) as paint, and a hubcap as the paint brush, and in sculpture Vara uses reclaimed automobile parts.
Vara speaks visually around the complexities that surround fossil fuel, climate change, awareness and health. The work is research based incorporating a difficult mosaic of emotional, pragmatic considerations.
