A vision of heaven is reflected in Michelle Doll’s exhibit “As Above So Below” at Lyons Wier Gallery. The title of the show, taken from the Christian Lord’s Prayer, “On Earth as it is in heaven” refers to the macrocosm reflecting the microcosm or heaven being reflected in the individual. Doll’s sensitively painted figures are from the perspective of a voyeur from above with the viewer looking directly down onto the scene of the artist's close family and friends. Both lovers and those loved are represented in the images. Several larger than life paintings referred to as "macros" are paired with much smaller "micro" paintings. All the works are of figures embracing in intimate scenes of familial love and nurturing kindness, and reflect a tenderness and hope for a world that at admittedly seems dark and daunting to many of us. The entwined limbs and bodies of families lying together embrace the viewer in quiet stillness. Doll’s images challenge the viewer to confront their own mortality by referring to a biblical verse often used at funerals and memorials and remind us what is truly important in this life. “As Above So Below" is a hopeful and refreshing series focusing on the intimacy of family relationships.
