Margaret Michel

Margaret Michel (masters degree in Asian Art History from the Ecole du Louvre), is one of four siblings.  Born in New York she traveled extensively as a child to Africa, Hawaii and Europe.  She lived in California for 13 years where she taught at Ohlone College in the San Francisco Bay area and presently lives in Vallauris, France.  Her development as an artist comes from apprentiships and jobs assisting working artists, and over the years has acquired a solid knowledge of metal skills.  With an acute curiosity in the sciences and an indepth understanding of western and world cultures, her means of expression is very unique.

 She has received numerous awards and attended many residences in the US and France.  She has exhibited with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Artists Gallery, and Rollo Contemporary Art in London as well as presenting a large solo show of her work at the Musee d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain in Nice France.  She lives with her husband in France and is currently represented by RH Contemporary Art in New York.




“Our universe is in movement whether in microscopic transformation or in the constant expansion of the cosmos.  I treat this entity, movement as a subject, observing it, creating it.  With the objects available to me I mimic certain processes, thought associations, logical deduction, absurd and chaotic situations as well as the natural movements of the elements and the unrelenting rhythms of time.”
