About Michele Mikesell

About the artwork

Everybody Loves A Sock Monkey is a stunning pop figurative painting. Mikesell used oil on wood board to achieve a great smooth texture and the sides are finished with the natural wood. It does not need a frame. This whimsical painting is perfect for a contemporary and eclectic environment.

“Creating individuals is what I find most interesting in the studio. It is my hope that these portraits will be familiar characters to the viewer, subjects we recognize and identify with. My work consistently travels along a general vein of the universal human experience. This particular group of paintings is an iconographical departure from previous work in that literal human features have been introduced. Other aspects of this work directly reference the anthropomorphic petro glyph characters in which I first based my interest in painting. These realistic, stylized faces placed within loosely interpreted animal shapes and costumes narrate a continued thesis of dichotomy and metaphor - comparing and contrasting human ideas with animal instinct. Irony, contradiction, humor and tragedy, have been continued themes in my work and are illustrated not only within the image..."
