Michal Glikson

Michal Glikson works with nomadic art practice, using the combination of travel, social interaction, and cultural immersion to generate experiences, stories about which she paints. She holds degrees in Political Science, Fine Arts, and Theatre, and studied Masters in painting at the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India. In 2017, Michal completed her PhD that explored journey painting across Australia, Pakistan, and India. Her scrolls have been exhibited in multiple countries and in 2017 she received a QARTS grant to exhibit her doctoral work, the Australindopak Archive in Vienna and Morocco.

I have long been fascinated with the idea of the storyteller as a calling, and with painting as a way of looking. Opening to influence and to the invitation is how I find my language and the stories I tell. I work with the scroll, and with miniature - resonant modes that allow me to translate and share the abiding experiences, encounters, and insights yielded through such journeys.
