Michael has been studying painting and teaching visual art for over twenty years in Tokyo, New York City, Florence and London as well as Ottawa and Kingston, Canada. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows, had dozens of commissions and received a travel grant and a Visual Arts Educator award.


My painting explores the skin of paint as both a place of conjuring of a human presence and as a medium exuding its own qualities. I have explored traditional and non-traditional processes, tools and materials in order to reflect an understanding of the way this skin suggests and creates empathy in the viewer through the dimpled sag of slackened skin, the muscular furrows of a worried brow and the scoring of laugh-lined cheeks. My work addresses both the languages of representation and our visceral responses to material. Each sign and sinew de-signs you, is in you.
