Michel Droge
Michel Droge is a painter, printmaker and educator whose work engages with the environment and the human condition in an era of uncertainty. Michel creates abstract paintings of atmospheric environments with details of grids unraveling, constellations and micro organisms revealing an immersive macro/micro world. In the process Michel embraces a layering of scientific research with inspiration from literary and poetic sources . Their print projects involve field research and collaboration with conservation and environmental groups such as Maine Audubon Society, the Island Institute and others. Michel is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant and two Maine Arts Commission Grants. They have been awarded fellowships and residencies at the Tides Institute, The Joseph Fiore Foundation/Maine Farmland Trust, The Stephen Pace House and The Saltonstall Foundation. Their solo exhibitions include the Maine Audubon Society, University of Maine Machias, University of Maine Farmington, June Fitzpatrick Gallery and the Frank Brockman Gallery. Michel’s work has been included in national and international exhibitions amongst which include the Bates College Art Museum, The Cue Art Foundation in NYC, ICA at MECA, Gould Academy, Boston University and Brandeis University.
