Michael Wayne Garfoot
Michael is an artist whose work explores how proximity and intimacy is evolving in an Internet driven, self-isolating, social media-ruled culture. The naturalist and semi-abstract approach to art making derives from his love and history of the Renaissance Masters and from the expressive qualities of paint and color in contemporary art.
