Along Michgans Shores

Matt Hagemann's avatar Matt Hagemann

The natural world has its own unique form of intelligence, balance, sense of mystery, and power that dwarf any man made environment. That is what the artist expresses on canvas through his intuition and artistic skills. The paintings exhibit a somewhat realistic quality, but with a bit of a twist. Through the use of stylization, the artist becomes a magician, who gently lures us into the enchanted realm of his imagination, where common landscapes magically become mysterious, dreamlike, surreal, mystical, or even spiritual, where stillness prevails, as if a moment is frozen in time. With a strong technical foundation, intuitiveness, and skillful stylization, the artist has created this unique and compelling signature style of his own.
