Michael Twery: Evolving Artistic Vision Explores Light, Shape, and Diverse Mediums
"My development as an artist started through close observation of nature, study of classical rendering, and realistic representation. My main interest was capturing the quality and shape of light. As I grew and matured my interests expanded into shaped paintings, abstract painting and drawing, assemblages, installations and sound sculptures.
I work in a variety of media and processes in both 2 and 3 dimensional forms, allowing me to express myself in many different ways. I find that alternating my subjects, media, and processes of working, helps strengthen my abilities in each different area.
I work out of my studio in Lynchburg, VA, creating original bodies of work for exhibitions and installations, and doing commission work for many businesses, individuals, civic organizations, and public institutions."
