Michelle Volz, Contemporary Fine Art
Michelle Volz is a Utah contemporary artist who loves painting thick, textured landscape scenes with rich commanding colors including the ocean, beach, aspens, mountains and more using palette knives. A texture junkie, her motto is “the thicker the better” as she sculpts landscapes with her palette knife, making aspens feel like you can reach out and stroke the bark, and oceans waves appearing as they might ascend out of the canvas and into your home and office space. She even has experience re-imagining and painting business logos, giving them a new dimension. She currently accepts commissions.
The Handprint Pledge is a community art project from Utah that began with local artist Michelle Volz. With paint the color of their skin applied to their hands, community members put their hands to black canvases to pledge to no longer remain silent on issues of racism. The Handprint Pledge has become a symbol of love, community and solidarity in the fight for racial equality. Prints of the original Handprint Pledge are now on sale. Proceeds from the prints will be donated to assisting organizations that address racial issues.
