Beat Gallery Artist-bio
The son of a well-known animator and artist, Michael grew up in a creative environment that proved a lifelong influence. Michael took art classes taught by professors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. With this training, his family background in art, and his relationship with Ferus Gallery artists he has been handed a baton to carry forward a never-ending art project that allows creative ideas to flourish. Collecting the items he uses in his work from Antique and junk stores, and online auctions, he find it inspiring to give old objects a new life as he works in his ranch studio overlooking Anderson valley. What may look like a series of broken pieces in front of you will ultimately grow to become an‘Assemblage’. As with much art there is a series of readjustments, while at other times there may be simultaneous harmony where everything comes into play quite rapidly. Oftentimes mistakes in the joining of objects that are different can lead you on a new path creating a “happy” mistake. This is the adventure in the evolution of the making of Assemblage Art, like a poetic development. Common object begin to form the dynamic of a certain cohesion with a new life for these discards and found objects. 2017 Philo, CA
