Representing galleries


Michael Waugh, b.Cambridge, MA, is a gay, American artist who currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His interest in authoritative texts as generative of social reality is manifested in his large-scale, labor-intensive drawings that are composed entirely out of handwritten text. Drawing upon his own experience of social and political disenfranchisement, Waugh reminds us that the world is as we've made it: beautiful, contradictory, and overwhelming. But the future, like our  minds, remains discursive.

He is a 2009 Fellow in Printmaking/Drawing/Brook Arts from the New York Foundation for the Arts; a 2009 recipient of a Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation space award; and the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center; his work has been shown widely, including as part of the 10th Havana Biennial in the show "Chelsea Visits Havana."
