Michael Bartmann

"I am drawn to non-designed, left-over places. I evoke emotion using spatial dimension, atmosphere, and defining architecture. Space is a living thing in these paintings; a tangible, palliable presence. Tension exists among the use of traditional one point perspective, the flat abstract two-dimensional canvas world, and the surface of the paint. 

 

I am interested more in the journey through the space and paint layers rather than a particular fixed image. I like the idea that the viewer is free to roam around. I want the entire process to show through the final painting. The residue of the previous drawing and painting comes through in the final version."
