Colours of the Heart by Michaela Rinaldi
Ground Art Caffe hosts a solo exhibition by Michaela Rinaldi, entitled Colours of the Heart. Rinaldi uses techniques developed through experimentation and a love affair with colour. One could describe her work as abstract figurative, however she prefers viewers to look at the art with their heart, rather than their eyes, and to find a connection with a piece through a resonated emotion or a personal intimate experience.
