Michael Amter

Residence Project - Artist Statement

Fascinated with themes of science, often referencing the constant relevance of space, time, gravity, etc., on the human experience. A heavy psychological narrative dominates the personal focus. Themes reflecting upon causation, correlation, etc., are obsessively repeated. Often attempting to mimic the increasing speed consuming daily life. A constant obsession remains, trying to break down the incredibly complex into the most simplistic, while maintaining some essential relevance.
