Exhibition Overview

Curated by Myrtis Bedolla

Michael Gross, painter and printmaker, offers expressive and emotional filled works using a kaleidoscope of color.  Gross creates art as “a means of grappling with the impulses and struggles that make up the way I see my place in the world.” Through his visual lexicon, which is devoid of ideological reference, Michael seeks to create order from chaos. His lyrical compositions of concatenated lines, textured surfaces and rich hues, invoke Abstract Expressionism and pay homage to artists who inspire his work: Willem De Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn and Jackson Pollock.

A catalog accompanying this exhibition is available for sale in the Museum Shop.
