My name is Michael McConnell and I have been a Resident Artist at the Red Brick Center for the Arts in Aspen, Colorado for 10 years. I primarily work with acrylics and other media in combination.
Painting and image-making for me is an exploration of the intersection between surface, form and material through abstraction and abstract-representation.
My experimental mission is to fuse idea to material to process and create an alchemical space where elements of architecture, cartography, landscape, cinema, symbol, surface, contour and horizon line all may co-exist.
Thus my image-making ideas draw from a wide-ranging mix of interests: from botany to technology, science to science fiction, camera obscura to cinema, typography to printmaking.
If you are interested in engaging me in a painting commission, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss the particulars.
