The Baggage Handler and Michael Hermesh:

To read up on Michael Hermesh and the Baggage Handler story you can visit the website dedicated to this controversial sculpture: Frank the Baggage Handler .

“As the sculpture was being repaired by a conservator on Bowen Island. I found myself on the ferry with a reporter and a photographer from the Toronto Star, who came along to document the re-sculpting of a penis.”

It Ain’t About You and It Ain’t About Death:

What if it’s all a joke?

Michael Hermesh

Mixed Media Diptych on Panel; 47.5 x 57.5 inches
There Are No Secrets Show,
November 8th to 29, 2012, Petley Jones Gallery
SOLD

In 2012, Michael had a show where a painting called “It ain’t about you and it ain’t about death” was featured and sold. The following year, he and his wife traveled to Rhyolite Nevada – a ghost town, and artist enclave. All of a sudden Michael found that many of the elements in his painting were a part of the real landscape. “The spiral, the penguin, the zygotes, mountains, mountain climbers, the pole with the figurehead and wings, the building, the fence… It was as if I had pulled the painting together from my own future.”
