"This painting is based on a story about Crazy Horse and his battles against the U.S. Government to fight for territories and the way of life for his people. The original piece is 50 x 56 inches painted with acrylic and oil on a canvas stretched over wood panel mixed with many layers of liquin and varnish to make it glow. " - Michael Page
Michael has an upcoming exhibition at White Walls Gallery
in San Francisco on April 14th 2012.
White Walls is pleased to present Élan Vital, an accumulation of Michael Page’s new
work into what is guaranteed to be an impressive solo show. The show has been much
awaited since a 2011 solo show at Shooting Gallery, entitled Into Passing, where the
artist created visual landscapes made stunning with ethereally blended colors and
dreamlike scenes. With a much larger space to utilize, Élan Vital will feature thirty
paintings and six drawings, as well as an installation. The opening reception is
Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public
for viewing through May 5, 2012
