RocheBobois, in partnership with Opulent Living Concept Store & Gallery, is very happy to introduce you to the South African artist Michaela Rinaldi!

Her work will be exhibited in the showroom from the 10th to the 30th of May. A total of 14 paintings will be displayed on their walls, giving a new energy to their furniture.

Michaela’s art can best be described as Abstract Figurative, but no neat definition exactly fits. The large format paintings are powerful, bold, experimental. They appeal to the emotions. Her abstract figures represent facets of humanity: intriguing and utterly compelling.

“I paint from a place of feeling,” says Michaela. “The pieces are not literal, but come from a deep place within. I encourage you to look at my paintings with your heart, rather than your eyes. How does the painting make you feel? What emotions does it stir in you?”

“My art is my process,”saysMichaelaRinaldi.“ It’s a journey of growth through painting; an awakening of consciousness. I am constantly experimenting, finding new techniques and new ways of expressing myself. My latest affair is with colour!”

Looking at her work in this way grants the viewer a very personal perspective. Her paintings take you into a unique world and, because of their beguiling abstraction, allowing you to “complete” the painting and find your own meaning in their mysterious beauty.

Michaela Rinaldi’s exhibition, curated by Opulent Living Concept Store & Gallery, runs from 10 to30 May at:

10-12 Kloof Street, Cape Town.
Open weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.
