SANTA FE, NM | Micqaela’s latest body of work entitled “From the Earth” takes a closer look at Native Wildlife from a new perspective. While Micqaela is widely known for her bright, vibrant and colorful paintings depicting animals, Tipis and traditional Head-Dresses, this new series of work focuses attention on wildlife and simplifies the visual experience with a toned down and muted color structure, reminiscent of a sepia-style color palette.
For the past 3 years Micqaela has been living in the High Desert within the “Great Basin” area of Nevada. Tones of brown, red and black staunchly divide up the Landscape of this Desert creating large swatches of barren land, ancient black and red lava flows, brown and green sage brush for miles and the occasional splash of beautiful and brilliant color brought about by a lonely spring or the seasonal monsoon rains. These lush watered areas are where wildlife of all types gather to drink and be refreshed. While we often think of the Desert as places void of life and color, they are in fact inundated with creatures of all kinds both great and small and colors that truly inspire the soul!
Animals and nature have always been an important part of Micqaela’s upbringing and continue to deeply inspire her work. She hopes this new series of raw and contemporary paintings captures those beautifully unique and rare moments when wildlife is encountered up close and personal.
