Michael, lives in the northern beaches of Sydney, He captures in his art the light of that lovely location and was happy at the opening of his sell-out show at Eva Breuer Galley. Openings are nerve wracking at the best of times for but this one was a cause for celebration
Michael was a student at the Julian Ashton Art School from 1999 to 2002, where he won The John Olsen Scholarship. He developed a distinctive style very early, the strongly modelled, exquisitely coloured collage like paintings, having grown from the simplified forms he was attracted to when he was a student at the school. These are powerfully thought out works refined to very essences. The fluency with which he portrays the happiness in his heart reveals the draughtsman who is also a master of line.
To lift your spirits, in our winter of discontent, visit this exhibition which runs from the 16th till the 26th of June 2012 at 83 Moncur St. Woollahra
