Michelle Uckotter

With her visceral and expressive use of oil pastels, Michelle Uckotter’s paintings and drawings feature doll-like women in the transitional spaces of homes, such as hallways, attics, and basements. Her subjects reflect tropes found in the Hollywood horror genre and heighten their most suspenseful scenes. Uckotter also infuses the canon of painterly modernism—including art historical references such as the Nabis, Munch, and Hans Belhmer—with today’s aesthetics of contemporary femininity.
