These Michelle Fleck paintings make up a visually factual series that reflects the subtly heartbreaking truth of human impact on the environment.

Using acrylic and aerosol paint on panel, these Michelle Fleck paintings are recreations of the sad and worthless remnants humans leave behind. I think Michelle captures attention and her paintings evoke questions involving worth and necessity.

Living daily life In San Francisco, Michelle paints the interaction and exchange between humans and the earth as it is. These observations cannot be denied or interpreted in any other way than exactly what they are. My favorite detail is how the artist included the word “Thank You” on each of the plastic bags she recreates.

This Michelle Fleck series is beautifully relevant and rather sobering to take in—as the truth can often be.
