Portrait Michelle Stuart
MICHELLE STUART, born in Los Angeles, CA, February 10th 1938. American conceptual artist, painter and draughtswoman. She studied at the Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles (1954–5), at the Instituto de Bellas Artes, Mexico City (1955–6), under Diego Rivera, and at the New School for Social Research, New York (1958–60). Her first exhibition was at Douglass College, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ (1973). As a child Stuart had accompanied her father, an engineer, to survey and map water lines in the deserts of southern California. While working as a topographical draughtswoman and topographer for the Army Corps of Engineers she mapped the earth’s crust from Las Vegas, USA, to Korea. Stuart acknowledged the influence of such experiences on her work, which focuses on a celebration of human culture and its various artefacts, rituals and monuments, often incorporating the arts of non-Western societies. Her early works took the form of large sculptural scrolls, made of paper and earth. In the late 1970s she produced such pieces as Stone/Tool Morphology (Kodacolor photographs, earth on paper, mounted on muslin, 682 units covering c. 1.8*3.87 m, 1977–9), for which she visited 11 sites where Native American peoples of c. AD 300–700 had highly developed artisanal skills and trade routes in copper, feathers, mica, obsidian and shell. By the late 1980s she was producing paintings with mixed-media, for example Cape Sebastian (Oregon) (encaustic, pigment, plants, rocks and rags, mounted on canvas, 1988). Works by Stuart are in the collections of MOMA, New York, the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, Krefeld, and the Australian National Gallery, Canberra. | www.michellestuartstudio.com
