“Just keep working, trying...Experience the present, the process of making my work is the most enriching part of my day. If things are not alright, it’s because yet is not the end, in the end everything is going to be alright.”
"My practice has always gravitated towards perceptions and conformities, exploring individualism and how it is rooted in contemporary issues. Focusing on society’s most ubiquitous elements, I'm ultimately interested in the things that connect us all.
Utilizing the 'familiar', I'm attempting to create a universal aesthetic, I work to challenge our relationships with society most inalienable of technologies. Turning more inwardly on the world of art, exploring hierarchies of materials, I examine consumerisms footprint on contemporary living." - Michael Wall
