The oversized bird in this painting represents the psychological dissimilarities between nature and the city for me. The female figure, who is calmly interacting with it, further amplifies the absurdity while at the same time makes the situation seem natural. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvas are painted a warm gray and the piece is wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Michael

Michael Wedge works in a variety of mediums: sculpture, painting, mixed media and more. He oftentimes starts with a mental image and creates digital collages, which become the basis for his paintings. A lot of his work references themes from his personal life, such as the experience of living in a city versus in the countryside. If his art seems mysterious, it’s because he enjoys making complex works. “I am attracted to images or moments that seem to have something subtle or hidden under the surface,” he explains. When he’s not making art, he teaches it at an elementary school. He also dabbles in music and writes songs whenever he feels inspired.
