Bonner David Galleries is excited to announce the latest show, by internationally collected painter, Michael Carson. This year he will feature his characteristic figures in an array of media. In addition to his highly collected oil paintings, which have gained recognition and attention in the art community, he is expanding to use new techniques on metal and paper.
His process on metal, which he calls ‘unpainting,’ depicts his same poised and moody figures in a fresh and unique way. He first paints the metal with a coat of white paint, then sands away the layer of white to create the figures. He then finishes them by adding a special coating to help the metal rust in a way to add dimension to the shadows and figures.
Carson has also begun to create smaller original works on paper. Using a combination of charcoals, graphite and water, he creates black and white figure drawings with all the elements characteristic of Carson’s work.
This beautiful, must-see show opens on March 20th, with a special artist reception from 6-9 pm. The show will be hung in the gallery through April 10th. This is a show you don’t want to miss, so mark your calendars and come see these incredible works for yourself.
