About

David Micheaud’s practice is concerned with the act of looking. Seemingly mundane objects and landscapes are carefully observed over time. Overlooked details become central in paintings that capture the atmospheric tones of light and delicate shifts in colour of the environments that frame them. They appear to be born of a resistance to the typical pace of looking; a desire to slow down and delve deeper. Drawing on his experiences with epilepsy, Micheaud found new ways to think about beauty, peace and a confidence in his own experiences of quietude. Taking inspiration for the correct translation for Freud's 'unheimlich' which is 'unhomely', Micheaud looks to eerie interiors as the backdrop to his own feelings of unease, which then transform into a language of comfort and dependency. His work invites us to slow down and appreciate time and space in a world which increasingly takes both away.
