Aston Martin Residences art gallery presents “Domestic Situation”
The Aston Martin Residences in Miami ushers in digital artist Michele Utley Voigt, as its first female exhibitor selected for its Virtual Art Gallery series, featuring an international array of eclectic talent.
Connecticut-based artist, Michele Voigt’s new exhibition, entitled “Domestic Situation,” will be featured for two months as a “3D immersive experience,” and follows collections exhibited by Aston Martin Residences from Julian Lennon, Aaron Schwartz, Fabio Mesa and Robi Walters. As a uniquely diverse online gallery tour, the viewer takes “virtual” steps that replicates entering the building’s physical art gallery currently being built on the 52nd floor. The colorful exhibit can now be viewed here.
Forged from the stable of Contemporary Art Projects USA, Voigt’s explosive works of art explores what she calls the “systematic domestication of women, transcendentalism, and modernization of pragmatic feminism.” These works gambol between the modern world through digital technology and the traditional world via oil paint on canvas applied using master’s techniques, Voigt explains.
“These large-scale paintings, NFTs, and digital presentations consider our modern caste system, aspirations for beauty, entrapment of desire, empowerment of luxury, and ultimate emancipation,” says Voigt. “The works explore systemic female conditioning and align the subjects within that realm while embracing cultural icons. The works explode with voyeuristic opportunities offering both the subject and the viewer moments steeped with escapism.”
Voigt is also pleased to present “Aquasitions,” an original oil on canvas, for the Aston Martin Residences’ permanent collection – inspired by the residences’ sail-shaped architecture and stunning interiors, with a colorful creation that is as vibrant as Miami itself.
Voigt is an internationally exhibited and award-winning artist. She lives and works between California and New York and is represented by Contemporary Art Projects USA, Miami. She is known for her electric images of the human experience divulged from the female perspective. Voigt received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Otis Parsons Art Institute Los Angeles and Parsons Art Institute, Paris.
Voigt exhibits in New York, Los Angeles, London, Florence, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Miami, New England, and Santa Fe. She participates in major art fairs, including CONTEXT, Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary, Art Wynwood, ARTROOMS London, Florence Biennale, Art Santa Fe, and SCOPE. Her works can be found in many private collections, museums, and institutions. Voigt paints stories of the human experience. The soul of life, demonstrated in depictions of figures interacting within a realm of time, realities, and one another. The interconnectedness of all elements and time. What is seen and not seen. Known and not known. Contemporaneous, interacting, and incessantly influencing one another in a continuum of the past, present, and future.
“Domestic Situation” by Michele Voigt can now be viewed at the Aston Martin Residences Virtual Gallery, here.
