Bonner David Galleries certainly has a jam packed January. BDG's fourth January opening is January 22nd featuring highly collected figurative artist Michael Carson. The exhibition continues through February 4, 2009. Carson's loose impressionistic brushstrokes are fabulous as he captures the movement of the figures in familiar spaces such as restaurants and bars. This is a show every art lover will not want to miss! Bonner David Galleries promotes their artists with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
Figurative artist Michael Carson combines his love of architecture with the human figure to create a series of narrative paintings of his distinctive people in familiar situations. His nondescript surroundings help create a mood or a story that Carson relays as his figures take the center stage. His work is known for his seamless brushstrokes and his dramatic use of color and light.
Mike Carson states about his work: My work is first and foremost figurative studies. It's what I like to paint, my biggest challenge and my greatest payoff. My nondescript surroundings help me create a mood or a story that I am trying to relay through my painting. Inspiration comes from architectural interiors as well as fashion and my work allows me to explore and explain this side of myself. Seeing how the work evolves, the subtle and the drastic differences, and looking forward to the future is what keeps me painting. I view a painting as a success when I take from it something new that follows me into my next work. It's just about learning to become a better painter.
