BY MICHAEL VELLIQUETTE
@ VOL 26
ON APR 12, 2018
Best known for his elaborate, colorful paper sculptures, the artist Michael Velliquette will talk about his recent monochrome series. 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 pastels and neutrals. Beginner’s Mind refers to an approach to living without preconception—a sensibility that characterizes the skillfully simple posture Velliquette brings to his new work.
