Michelle Mckinney’s beautiful woven metal sculptures are a work of elegant simplicity which, in itself, is the first of many seductions into an engagement with a complex network of tensions. The work is bedded in the clear space between opposites; the movement captured in stillness; the fragility and ephemerality of nature captured in the strength and permanence of industrial, man made materials; inexorable freedom within the clinically defined limitations of space. It is the dialogue that takes place between these polarities that engage so forcefully.

Whilst utilising symbols found in nature that have a timeless constancy, the methods and materials used are innovative applications of contemporary industrial products subtly handled so that even the closest scrutiny of the materials give almost no intimation of their origins. This play between the timeless and the immediate is at the heart of Michelle’s work. However tranquil the order of the instant may seem it cannot segregate itself from the underlying chaos of nature and it is into this engagement with chaos that we are lured, so unassumingly, by the captivating simplicity of order.

Michelle has undertaken a number of high profile commissions with clients including :-The British Council, The Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter, The Dorchester Hotel Group
