Michael's art is a very unique point of view that usually makes me say to myself. I never really thought about it that way. His art produces an observation that is worth considering. His work is sometimes profound, sometimes ironic, sometimes comedic but always interesting. He is driven to master the tools and techniques of his art - like a dedicated musician that is always practicing his instrument. He uses his acquired skill sets to produce one of a kind sculptures — some are little jazz riffs and some are very fine symphonies but they are always thought provoking.
