Overview

MICHAEL VELLIQUETTE is a mixed media artist working in drawing, collage, and sculpture, and is most known for his works with cut paper. These works engage the nature of matter, sensation, perception, reaction, and consciousness.

Velliquette hand-cuts paper shapes and assembles them into complex forms akin to sacred architecture and three-dimensional mandalas. The formal symmetry, balance, and order of these works are meant to evoke a sense of visual equanimity. Velliquette forgoes his prior use of vibrant color, instead employing an emotionally restrained palette of neutrals and monochromes
