Michael Wayne Garfoot
I am an artist who uses two approaches and techniques to express myself through paint. With the abstract works, my goal is to create a visual language by capturing a thought, feeling, or a memory from my past.
The figurative works are a look into proximity and intimacy in an Internet driven, self-isolating, social media-ruled culture. A combination of naturalist and expressionistic styles in these works are most derived from my interest in the precision and beauty in Renaissance Masters and the expressive qualities of paint and color in contemporary art.
Products of Society
