IMAGES: Michele Araujo @ Studio 10

In 2010 I visited Michele Araujo's DUMBO studio, where she was working on several promising new paintings. Known for piercingly bright acrylic colors and the use of small collage elements that neither blend with the well-worked surfaces nor cleanly separate themselves from it, Araujo has discovered a calmer, less high-pitched groove, giving her shapes, strips, lines and squiggles some room to breathe. Along with Elana Herzog and Lisa Sigal, Araujo's work is included in "Out Side," a terrific, if crowded, exhibition at Studio 10 through April 22.
