"Tin Robot" (2013) by American Contemporary artist Michael Fitts is a whimsical and highly detailed original oil painting on reclaimed metal. Fitts paints the vintage toy in a manner that is intentionally filled with nostalgia and Neo-Pop kitsch. He elevates the importance of this whimsical everyday object to the status of a revered icon, by painting the toy in super-bright colors, placing it at the center of the metal "canvas" and with a deep shadow, as if it hovers just above the rusted brown surface.
There are moments in our lives when we experience awakenings - moments when we know more than we knew a moment before. One of the things we may know is that we are one with the universe - that the ebb and flow of need and abundance in our lives represents our seasons, just as clearly as the first sprout of grass in spring or last amber leaf in autumn signify the cyclical and ever-changing path of nature.This realization is what inspires my work. Painting, for me, is not only a form of expression, but also one of transformation. It is through this journey to the core of creativity that I discover my own.
The eye makes its way to the water through the dunes and beach grass. This piece is part of an ongoing series created with a palette knife and displays unique layering of color and abstract perception. When beginning this particular piece, I wanted to depict the dunes in a very large format and show the expanse of the changing sky. The painting is on gallery wrapped Belgian linen with clean, natural edges. It comes varnished and wired to hang.
Fortitude I and Fortitude II were inspired by two beautiful trees whose leaves turned gorgeous, seasonal colors, but refused to fall when surrounding trees had succumbed to the weather. The piece is finished on the edges, varnished, wired, and ready to hang.
