Michael Velliquette: In Space and Other Places

In Spaces and Other Places is a recent body of work by Michael Velliquette that marks a new trajectory in his practice, combining his mixed-media drawings with his complex cut paper constructions. Velliquette revisits the vocabulary of symbols and images found in his earlier works, including double-sided profiles, hands, and collectives of faceless figures, which he’s previously set in mythological, scenic narratives. Themes of exploration, alien encounter and transformation are played out in the backdrop of outer space.

    Fantastic! I wonder how long each piece takes him? It seems incredibly detailed and time consuming. The finished product is worth it, though. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Wow! These are really neat! I love creative pieces of art like this. They’re fun to look at and it’s clear the amount of effort it must have taken to make. Very cool. 🙂
