Michael found early success as a sculptor, receiving numerous awards and accolades for his academic work and gallery exhibitions. As a young man, he developed his craft in Italy before receiving his BFA from Alfred University, and MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has shown extensively throughout the U.S. and in Europe.
Michael’s pieces address concept and form through the visualization of fused biological and mechanical elements. His sculptures are hybrids of disparate materials and immersive environments coming together to radiate destructive and re-constructive energy.
Michael’s art showcases a compelling juxtaposition between materials and modalities, including metals and glass, stone and kinetics, fire and liquid, 3D objects and video. By contrasting natural functions with industrial and technological processes, Michael has formed a dynamic body of work that explores the exponential evolution of medium and concept.
