Contemporary abstract paintings by Michele Luminato

Michele is an American-born painter living in the northern suburbs of Melbourne with her Australian husband and two children. Her abstract paintings use water based mixed media on canvas and paper. She has a self proclaimed obsession with colour layering and blending flouros, custom pastels, and rich darks. Michele’s abstract artwork explores conceptual themes related to her life experiences.

Her current collection includes three bodies of work. Recent work called “Chasing Dreams” is a discovery of the mountains we climb in pursuit of happiness. The “Crossroad City/ New York” series explores conceptual themes of intensity, excitement, and vulnerability through colours and technique. The “I See You” series is a discovery of colour and light as energy/spirit forms that surrounds us in day to day activities.
