Michael has shown throughout California and Europe, and currently resides in San Francisco. With his new paintings common themes kept emerging. An awareness impossible to ignore seemed to sprout in every conversation with Michael’s friends, family, and in his community. This thread of insight sewn through his every interaction needed to be expressed. So he started there.
Reflecting on his work, Michael found greed, hate and war, and their anecdote, love, running deep through each piece. Environmental neglect and its devastating effects reside in many of the paintings. And, subtle or not, there is also expressed discontent with the state of our political system and those that wield their power so callously.
