Hutson Gallery is pleased to present New Work an exhibition of paintings by Michael Page. With Michael Page's 2017 paintings you enter a world that seems familiar but as you look deeper, you find components of memories that are vaguely familiar but at the same time novel, comforting yet passionate. Michael’s use of red, blue and burnished copper creates planes, horizons and spheres from which radiates pathways of paint not always free of obstructions and sometimes marked by intricately executed dripping.
“This body of work is a conscience attempt to ‘let go’, to compose in a much looser style while using a more vibrant palette. These paintings were created during a singular, brief, yet intense moment of inspiration.”
Michael has been painting and showing in Provincetown, MA since 2000. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City (1988-1989) but is primarily self-taught. He has shown at The Musselman Gallery (Provincetown & Hudson, NY), Tristan Gallery (Provincetown), McGuire Gallery (New Bedford, MA & Nantucket, MA), William Scott Gallery (Provincetown & Boston) and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
In addition to his visual arts career Michael Page has pursued his interest in music and poetry. He has toured both Europe and Japan performing his brand of industrial music.
Michael is the resident scenic painter and set designer for the Payomet Performing Art Center in Truro.
