Michael Shemchuk is a self-taught mixed media artist. His work reflects his love of design, process, and visual communication. Shemchuk uses both paint and collage by combining color, line, and composition to create layered textured surfaces exploring the shift to a paperless culture. What does this shift mean to an archive? Shemschuck’s artistic process of layering and unlayering unfolds a cultural narrative and is itself an archive of paper remnants such as outdated tech manual, hand written notes, or an old utility bill. This work traces lives lived leaving us to ponder what it may mean when these vestiges are no longer visible.
