Michelle Iris Latham works in a variety of media including printmaking, book and box making, paper sculpture, drawing, painting, and ceramics.
Michelle is drawn to people, places, and searching for connections between seemingly dissimilar ideas, then exploring the discovery of their links via narrative, pattern, and line.
She earned her BFA in Craft with an emphasis in Book Arts & Printmaking from Oregon College of Art and Craft.
"I mean Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason - Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining
content with half-knowledge. This pursued through volumes would perhaps take us no further than this, that with a great poet the sense of Beauty overcomes every other consideration, or rather obliterates all consideration."
