Interview with Artist Michele Basora
The work of artist Michele Basora is mesmerizingly strange. Female figures, animals, and plants become one in her lush, fantastical visions. Birds sprout from women’s mouths; owl's wings turn into breasts; and dodo birds mingle with flowers. After seeing her solo show at Gitana Rosa Gallery's new Chelsea location, I sought the artist out to learn about the woman behind these mysterious paintings and drawings.
