Artist Michael Wedge paints a surrealist composition where lightbulbs replace vegetables. "The activity and its meaning are left up to the viewer," says Michael. He produces an enigmatic and mysterious display inspired by his interest in the contrasts between urban and rural lifestyles.

Michael Wedge

Geneseo, New York

Artist Michael Wedge paints engaging surrealist images that play on the contrast between urban lifestyles and rural settings. “My work is the product of my interest and curiosity in how the viewer sees or relates to their environment,” says Michael. Time, perception, and emotion also enter his work as he draws fascination from humans and their relationship to technology and nature. Drawing and painting for as long as he can remember, his family encouraged and supported him to pursue his artistic ambitions. Michael developed his style that relies strongly on the media employed in its construction to build a visual language that remains guided by the content. “I believe that reality is more than what we can see, hear, and touch,” shares Michael. He works at a small studio space in his home that offers natural light, allowing him to evaluate colors accordingly. Photography and digital collaging take part in his process of creating intuitive references to whimsical and enigmatic narratives. In addition to his successful career as a fine artist, Michael shares his craft as an art teacher to 400 awesome little kids at a nearby public school. He revels in woodworking and enjoys anything to do with a frisbee. The Black Radish Studio at the Village Gate in Rochester hosted his first solo exhibition.

Just received Girl in a Blue Room - it's even more beautiful in person. I love the background design, and the way you can see it through the girl's face.

Just received my painting. The shipping took some time, but I very pleased when it arrived. The colors and composition where exactly what I was expecting. It is now perched above my fireplace and definitely the showpiece of my family room!

Well said. I am often struck at how much time we (people) spend doing each activity. I, personally, have spent days on planes, weeks in cars etc. I also find it interesting that traveling vast distances in short amounts of time is almost incomprehensible to the human brain, and it is such a relatively new phenomenon. Being in a different state or country in a few hours can be psychologically disorienting. Thanks for explaining your art!

I realized that a significant amount of my time was spent driving and that much of what I experience (and many people experience) visually is seen from moving vehicles. It is a unique viewpoint because even though we are still, the world around us is in motion. I guess if all the visual information a person takes in on a daily basis is given equal weight, then that information which is seen from a car or a train or a plane is especially important in shaping our overall understanding of things because we can see so much in such a brief period of time.

That sounds interesting. I know other artists on Ugallery have captured the methods of travel, such as planes etc, and others have portrayed the destination as a scenic getaway. Your piece "Destination" actually captures the experience of walking and taking a taxi. Very cool. How do you think travel contributes to our visual culture?

Michael Wedge 6/26/2009 | 11:05 PM

LBelle, thank you for your kind words! I am currently working on a series of paintings relating to the theme of travel, how it contributes to our visual culture, and how it is related to the art-making process. Thank you again for your comments.

L Drake style="color: #000000;"6/25/2009 | 5:42 PM

Hi Michael, I think your "Destination" piece perfectly captures the hassle and frazzle of city travel. I love your art! Thanks!

Michael Wedge 6/12/2009 | 2:04 PM

Thank you, artist_atl. I appreciate it.

Wow! It would be impossible to become tired of this, which so much activity for the eye to take in.
