The Dunes Lake Michigan, 2016
Acrylic on canvas
22 x 29 inches
The dynamic arrangement of The Dunes Lake Michigan sweeps the eye along, suggesting a churning Lake Michigan balanced by rolling dunes and a still sky. Michels work makes use of hypnotic patterns, which resemble the painterly equivalent of ancient mosaics with vivid tiles of paint set off against complementary colors of grout.
