Artist Q & A

with Michel Varisco

Sunday, March 24th, 4PM


Michel Varisco has been a working artist for over two decades. While known primarily as a photographer, Varisco redefines the medium by creating photo-based assemblages, and site-specific installations that function in accordance with her still photographs.

In “Just Below the Surface” Varisco takes the seriousness of environmental and personal themes and creates a whimsical experience she calls “magical realism”. “We’re losing our heritage land. In a desperation to communicate the fix we’re in, I just took everybody under water with me; fast-forwarding into a modern-day Atlantis,” explains Varisco.
