More information about Michael Anderson
The artist lives and works in New York, New York. Anderson is an autodidact. Michael attempt to balance abstraction and representation in composition to create a static/non-static effect in the over-all experience of the work. These collages develop non-linear narratives that capture the experience of contemporary life with dark humor. In taking posters from the street, which are super-saturated and obvious, Michael focus ideas together to create a collision of energy that allows for tremendous juxtaposition. When people see his work there is a pinprick of recognition, an unexplainable familiarity, that they’ve seen parts before, but never in that way. As a sort of puzzle map of the collective unconscious, Michael makes art about the world we live in, a document to show what it’s like to be alive today.
