Catalog Raisonné


The contemporary vision of

MICHAEL GADLIN

Making art is part of seeking truth, it is the artist's path to their identity and often times the path which we surrender and chase. It is this vision of life that consumes the artist, transforming and expressing itself into the work that will become the artist's legacy. My motivation seeks truth and beauty that is yet realized. Creating the best work can only become present from nothing more that a hopeful vision.

"Through the years of making art, I began to realize we are all on a search through the work we create, not just to make the work itself for a sense of accomplishment, but to find meaning. The essence of life reflects what we seek. With that realization, I've come to an important conclusion, that an honest examination of one's (art) work is determined by the sum of two things; That which you have just discovered and that which you put into practice."

Refugees Welcome
The Hope For Zenith...

The Essence of A Refugee
 

As you are well aware, the contemporary Refugees' plight is a global epidemic. My effort to express the emotional events that they had reached the nadir of their sufferings. Yet with the tenure of their home country, they hope for Zenith- a more stoic coup d'œil.

My figures are fictive and intended to be ubiquitous in a universal nature. By bringing an emotional intimacy that carries weight I achieve an essence of an instinctive nature that is truly my pneuma, a visual language that is in-the-moment, intuitive, and thus uniquely my own.

"Building a surface comprised of fluid and sensual raw marks, layered expressively throughout. Seemingly scrawled directly onto the surface with no inhibitions to speak of. Drawing the viewer into the leftover shapes, that are strategically placed to play with your senses, between sensuality and reason."

"Combined with painting and drawing elements, disassembled, reassembled and thus, re-imagined, the interplay of abstract elements interwoven along with the figure act in an illusory locus."
