Michelle Lougee: What Begain...

February 7 - March 10, 2007

Boston, MA: In What Began..., Michelle Lougee debuts work using adobe paperclay, producing tactile woven pieces that evoke natural forms, nests and traps. Under close examination, layers of electrical and technological discards, cloth, and paper are visible. The result is a complex and intriguing surface that raises questions about consumption. With allusions as varied as sea life and war, the show promises to be thought provoking to a wide audience.

What Began... also includes a series of ceramic and mixed media "barnacles". These pieces wildly combine natural forms and habitats with technology and construction refuse such as wires, electrical plugs, and pieces of plastic and metal. Remaining constant in Lougee's work is her representation of a battleground between nature and human development.

Lauren O'Neal of Art New England writes "Michelle Lougee visualizes rich, contentious territory, raising questions about esthetics and ethics" and that her work is "a mix of whimsy and unease."

Michelle Lougee is an environmental artist, sculptor and ceramicist. Her artwork has been shown in many New England museum exhibits, including Chesterwood, The Fitchburg Art Museum, The Danforth Museum and The Art Complex Museum. In addition she teaches sculpture and ceramics to adults and children at various local museums. She holds a M.F.A. and a B.F.A. from Boston University and lives in Cambridge.

Lougees sculpture will be showing concurrently with the sculptures and prints of Peter Lipsitt.
