Michele Abeles is based in Brooklyn, New York. Her photographic collages are visually evocative of cutouts and mixed media and integrate analog and digital techniques in their compositions of colours, geometries, and bodies. Abeles holds a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University, where she was the recipient of the Richard Benson Award for Excellence in Photography in 2007. Abeles was featured in a recent solo show, Find Out What Happens When People Start Getting Real (2014), at Sadie Coles in London, UK; her work has also appeared in prominent group exhibitions including A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio (2014) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Test Patterns (2013) at the Whitney Museum of Art, New York. Abeles’s work will be featured in the forthcoming exhibition Second Chances at the Aspen Art Museum, Colorado.
