Michael Bartholomew (b.1957) American, resides in Indiana. As a self-taught painter who began oil painting in 2003, his work has been accepted into numerous art exhibitions and shows, earning recognition from juror's and praise from fellow artists, friends, and collectors. His work hangs in various private and corporate collections throughout the Midwest.
My philosophy towards still life painting is to say more with less with simplistic arrangements and the use of organic and inanimate objects.
To me, art is the vehicle that transcends through time, what we love, feel, and experience about this life we live. It represents every expression of humanity, good bad, or indifferent. It is not to be taken for granted or dismissed as something that is simply just there for the taking. But instead, art is to be respected because it tells the truth and reveals the soul of its creator.
