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.”
