Michael Burmeister

Painter, Ceramic, & Concrete Artist

Abstract Painting at its best is like exploring with no regard nor need for a map. It’s like getting lost in an environment that deserves close and wondrous attention. A good explorer knows to bump into things, trip on stuff, and step into the foreign.

My paintings are verb containers; fling it, splash it, drag it, scrape it, spray it, and brush it. I like to deploy paint. Paint should surprise me and I should be surprised by it.
