new works by Michael Page
August 4 - September 23, 2009
Friday August 7, 7-10pm
San Francisco painter Michael Page returns to Varnish Fine Art with bolder brushstrokes and global themes in this new series of oil on wood, ThankYouGoodbye, infused with both serious issues and humor in the execution. ThankYouGoodbye is also the FINAL REGULARLY SCHEDULED ART EXHIBITION at the current location of Varnish Fine Art.
ThankYouGoodbye is a cheery, blameless epitaph for our planet and ecosystem as we know it. Michael Page depicts global transformations rich in evolving life, migrating with a purpose into a possible new planetary age. Each painting in the series addresses ecological upheaval without political bent, revealing new earthly possibilities on massive scale, transformed far beyond the cause. Large numbers of evolved, crawling undersea plants, intermixing of tropical and arctic seas, ocean floors thrust skyward, and rays from a new horizon are part of our possible future from the vast imagination of an artist happy to have been here first.
