Influenced by friends in the historical Ferus Gallery I voyaged into dimensional sculptured Art known as Assemblage or ‘Junk Art’ In this world of ‘Common Objects’.  I found that they could be transformed into a representational art forms. There are certain modes of construction and cohesion in the relational paths that bring you to a finished piece of work. The way the process begins is through inspiration of found/discarded objects and by continually moving them around and abstracting them into what ultimately is a unified body. No assemblage is started with a clear view of what the finished piece will look like

After much fussing and labor, common objects begin to form the dynamic of a certain cohesion . These altered variations are filled with color, depth, texture and reflections. They also can convey a meaningful dialog.

The viewer sees familiar objects that have been altered with a new take where these objects have transformed the bounds of their original use into an Art Assemblage.

Michael lives with his artist wife Susan Spencer on their ranch in Northern California near Boonville.
