Michael Friend

Marquette, MI, United States

My images are created by applying black ovals to the entire canvas. A grid pattern makes the underlying structure so I can concentrate on the interplay of color, pattern, and form. I formulated a technique that draws on Seurat's pointillism, Van Gogh's rich use of color, and my familiarity with film animation. This painting technique is a form of pixilation by transition of color change through the application of dots. I taught art and film for thirty-five years in the public schools in Michigan.
