Massachusetts-based artist Michele Poirier Mozzone will be showing “Fractured Light,” a series of oil and pastel paintings of figures under water, at Paul Dietrich Gallery at CambridgeSeven in Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 2, 2020 – May 29, 2020.
Poirier-Mozzone’s underwater artworks were inspired by watching her daughter swim in a pool. She was intrigued by the beautiful quality of the light and distortion of the figure. According to an article in Cape Cod Life, Poirier-Mozzone shoots underwater with a GoPro camera to capture inspiration images. She infuses her underwater paintings with color, rather than retaining the predominantly blue tones of the original situtions.
The Taunton-born artist, who attended Emmanuel College in Boston, spends summers in Falmouth and teaches at Rhode Island School of Design’s Continuing Education Program and the Providence Art Club.
