Michael Wilson About

We work out of our ranch in the coastal hills near Mendocino, California. It gives a fresh perpective in particular using 'found objects' to do art. Growing up with a father who was a famous animator/ artist didn't persuade me right away to get into art, instead becoming a contractor and part time jazz pianist. Art was inevitable however and those early influences proved to be great. 1 comment


Art Assemblage by Michael Wilson

I am choosing to work the Art Assemblage arena due to influences and friendships with older artists who were the founders of the West Coast art movements of the famous Ferus Gallery (1957-66) in Los Angeles. Being inspired by the materials, (i.e. found/discarded objects) a construct is formed with a new life for these discards. The piece begins by continually moving found objects around and abstracting them into what ultimately may be a unified body. No assemblage is started with a clear view of what the finished piece will look like. After much fussing (and work) common objects begin to form the dynamic of a certain cohesion. Possibly the viewer sees familiar objects (perhaps now unrecognizable) that have been altered with a new take where these objects have transformed the bounds of their original use and taking the viewer to another place in consciousness.
