Paintings by Michiel Bullock
March – May
March 2 – May 30, 2020
Bullock was born in Kinston, North Carolina in 1949 and lived in West Virginia, Northern Virginia, a brief time in California and, for nearly 40 years, in Florida.
He started painting with oils and, occasionally acrylics, in 1967. “As a self-taught artist, I focus almost entirely on traditional representational landscapes and seascapes, with a strong leaning toward realism done exclusively in oils.”
“I have found a fascination, (possibly an obsession), with the way light, shadow and color come together to bring out the drama that exists in approaching storm clouds or the strength delivered to a powerful ocean wave… or the calmness found in the early morning surf. Working to capture the quiet of the first rays of daylight filtering into the deep forest, carried on the mist of the lingering morning fog. I cannot stand in Yosemite Valley and not be awed by the sheer majesty of El Capitan, yet at once be challenged by the impossibility of trying to recreate its’ beauty on canvas. To travel along the sandy coast of the southeast or the steep perilous cliffs of the Pacific coast, or the mountains and plains in between, and wrestle with simply enjoying natures’ beauty, or rushing back to the studio to put it on canvas. Every day delivers a new gift of color, light and shadow to enjoy and capture with paint and canvas
Michiel’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous art shows throughout the state of Florida. He am also a member of Oil Painters of America.
