Rustad Galleria – December 8th, 2016 to January 22nd, 2017
When making Art, with a capital “a”, Michael Forry has said that each canvas – whether it be a conventional canvas, animal skull or even skateboard – he feels like a kid in a candy store. “I have no idea of what’s going to happen next, but I know exactly what that painting will be in the end.”
His work is abstract, intense yet playful with titles that jump out at the viewer as much as the work does. Bright colours dance on the substrate Forry chooses for each distinct piece. As for Art, he creates with a spiritual guidance from somewhere deep within himself. He has spoken of Art as if it is a being unto itself, travelling through life with him, working parallel to him, plane to plane. The exhibition “Supercharger” brings together a selection of new work by Forry that exemplifies the profound and transcendental relationship he holds with Art and the process of making.
