Hopscotch

Original Painting

36X24 ACRYLIC AND SPRAY PAINT ON GESSO BOARD

in private collection 

I was inspired by the words by Veronika Krausas's haunting Opera called 'Hopscotch' that consists of 36 chapters.

IS ALL TIME SIMULTANEOUS is an excerpt from the Hopscotch album, Track 10.

The original painting was created using spray paint and acrylic, painted on gesso board. It was painted in concert while replaying the song continuously.

It tells the story of Lucha, Jameson, and Orlando. Encompassing the life of Lucha from her Quinceañera through her marriage and loss of her husband, until she is an old woman.

GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST

Michelle Spiziri's art is characteristic of Abstract Expressionism. However, she has an uncanny ability to bring out unique and evocative imagery while revealing unexpected visual stories.

She is also exploring ceramic sculpture as a medium of extended expression.

Much like life and while digging deeper within ourselves, inside the nucleus of Michelle’s art there exists layers of complexities, discoveries, and synchronicities forming before the reveal of a finished work.  

Michelle believes that the sometimes chaotic journey involves a chrysalis state of deconstruction in order to create something fresh and meaningful.  


Michelle's art work is extraordinary. Her work is soulful. She seems to connect to spaces that are only apparent when you take a second and a third look at her art. Her work is one of a kind.

ANTONIO SANCHEZ

I love Michelle's wit and spontaneity in her art. Her colors are raw and vivid. There is a lot of excitement and drama in her paintings.

Jude Asher

Michelle Spiziri’s expressionist paintings, self-labeled "emotionalism,” are complex works of art manifesting both a well-mastered craft honed over the years, and a spontaneity tapping into the deep layers of the unconscious.

Noelle Imparato

Michelle has always been a creative being and it comes directly from her soul. Her work is intuitive and authentic. She is always an inspiration. Love her work.

CHRISTINE WENDEROTH

Michelle is an amazingly talented and imaginative artist. I feel really lucky to have finally purchased a few of her works; a great investment!
