Matilda “Tilly” Michell

Matilda combines classical still life oil painting with a contemporary twist. She incorporates ordinary, everyday objects that fit so seamlessly into a classical context that they are barely noticeable as ‘modern’.

Matilda has taken part in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including being hung in the Portia Geach Portrait Prize and the Salon des Refuses at the SH Ervin Gallery. “My painting practice is built on a lifelong love of classical painting.

I try to pursue the fine craftmanship, stillness and exquisite sense of balance created by the classical masters, while bringing my own contemporary slant to it.”
Matilda will show us her tonal approach to painting, applicable to all mediums.
