July Featured Artist Michael Carson

July 2020 Featured Artist – Michael Carson
“Contemplative Moments”

Image of oil painting "Blue Flowers" by artist Michael Carson, on display at Bonner David Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York

Michael Carson has been called the “post-millennial Toulouse-Lautrec.” Like the turn of the century French master, Carson is a self-described people watcher. He paints figures with a soft, sophisticated touch. His works summon a pensive, ethereal feeling in the viewer. His subjects seem absorbed in a world of contemplation and inward thinking.

Working loosely and spontaneously, Michael Carson makes every brushstroke count. His use of color and light contributes to the overall meditative mood of his paintings, although he allows the viewer to interpret meaning using their own experience. These captured moments and this focus on atmosphere make Carson’s art both personal and universal and appeals to an increasing number of collectors in the United States and abroad.

The new paintings created by Michael Carson have a timeless quality. His imagery transplants viewers to a world of intimate moments and reveals the emotional contact onlookers get from gazing at the human figure. The sublime beauty of Carson’s subjects is reminiscent of the “Truth, Goodness, and Beauty” advocated by Aristotle, which transcends the limitations of place and time. While timeless, the imagery in Carson’s paintings retains, however, a distinct, contemporary flair. Michael Carson’s show at Bonner David Galleries, opens during the holiday season, on December 13 and will be on display until January 13. His spectacular new work is guaranteed to make an impact on any viewer.

Ending the Year in Style!

Starting off the busy evening with an intimate crowd

Thank you to everyone who came out Thursday night for the Michael Carson and Small Works Shows. The night was a huge success with red dots decorating the walls. Carson and his wife will now be calling Phoenix home, so the evening proved to be a great opportunity for the pair to experience true Phoenician hospitality. Four Peaks Brewery was kind enough to sponsor the event by providing their award winning beer which kept the night festive. Adding to the elegance of the evening were Harpist VeeRonna Ragonne and flutist Sherry Finzer (Dulce VAS) who performed holiday classics.

CD by Dulce VAS
