Poles apart, I'm the color of dying, you're the color of being born. Unless we breath in each other there can be no garden. So, that's why the plants grow and laugh at our eyes, which focus on distance. - Rumi, Quatrain no 921

sonoran arts NetworkSonoran Arts Network has a great interview with Michael.

"I want to thread a connection and weave a narrative through a series of my paintings which help structure both my rage at the disintegration of natural order and my yearning for an emotional spiritual life of primal innocence. Today nature is more like discontinuous fragments jammed between the ever expanding catastrophes of the man made world. Ralph Waldo Emerson believed heaven and earth, man and nature, could be united." Go to the interview
