Art work Description:
Mike’s process involves capturing decrepit structures, abandoned buildings, and empty lots in photographs and sketches, and incorporating these objects and spaces into imaginary environments on canvas. Mike likes to anchor his work in some recognizable space, but tends to improvise from there. For Mike, the work is a way to respond to both physical surroundings and cultural zeitgeist in one continuous methodology. He is generally interested in the way certain landscapes reflect difficult social issues, environmental issues, or the current economic mood. He hopes to address these issues in a nuanced way that is neither didactic nor inaccessible. The landscapes can be powerfully open-ended in this way; neither obvious nor meaningless, they provide spaces for the viewer to inhabit and interpret the significance of what is portrayed and what is absent.
