Contemporary Passions exhibition preview: Michele Meyer, sculptor
Michele Meyer and I are both showing our work at the annual Contemporary Passions exhibition, an opportunity for members of SHAF (South Hams Art Forum) to stage a major summer show of new works in a wide range of mediums and styles. The exhibition provides a snapshot of the artists’ current work, interests and creative passions.
The featured image above is called ‘Man’ and is one of several sculptures that Michele will have on show.
Michele Meyer, Sculptor
Michele was born in Austria and brought up and educated in Holland, Germany and Switzerland.
She worked and studied interior decoration in Cologne. Michele married and lived in Holland for 15 years bringing up a family and she enjoyed helping her husband assemble ideas and colours for his fashion collections.
The low light and the immense Dutch skies led her to study oil painting under Guus Melai and Olav Bijker.
Michele now has a small farm near Salcombe, Devon with a herd of South Devon cows – and keeps sheep – and enjoys country living to the full.
Her bold and earthy ceramic sculptures are born from Michele’s love for all living creatures and deeply felt optimism in life.
Michele works in highly fired clay to withstand outdoor temperatures, and uses the occasional touch of glaze and stone dust. She exhibits at her home in Salcombe – and her studio is open to visitors on demand – but her work can also be seen on her website.
