Statement

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of art and science. Those to whom this experience is a stranger, those who can not be rapt and amazed, are as good as dead for their eyes are closed (freely adapted from Albert Einstein, Living philosophies).

Michael B. Sky crafts paintings that are nothing short of extraordinary. Whether photorealistic landscapes or magnificent portraiture, each work is created with the utmost care and attention to detail. Rapture is a unifying theme within Sky’s oeuvre, which he discovers in grand cloud formations, a striking face, or the erratic contours of a well-worn floor. His dreams and subconscious are also a continual source of inspiration; life is the great mystery that he is exploring through his visionary art. "This creative ritual is the source of the eternal quest for self-knowledge," he states. Working with oil or mixed media on canvas, Sky’s treatment of vastly different subjects often suggests very similar feelings. Whether a beautiful recumbent nude lost in thought or heavenly beams of sunlight cast through sinister clouds, both become catalysts for passionate reverie. A limited palette of analogous colors with severe variations in tone further enhances the dramatic appeal of his work.

Paintings by Michael B. Sky can be found in private collections of art in Germany, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Holland, Poland, Great Britain, Japan and USA.
