Michael Endicott is an Urban Nature Impressionist exploring the interaction between the “subset environment” constructed by us and the “hosting environment” dictated by nature. There is a constant feedback loop between the two that affects us, both physically and culturally, as individuals and as a species. His manipulations of the light captured by his camera are like chiseling away at a piece of marble to find the element inside the scene that“triggers response.”
This process can pull his photography into the realm of expressionist or abstract painting, not by adding color via digital programming, but by "bending" the different wavelengths of light inherent in the original photograph. The effect can substantially alter viewers’ immediate understanding of the subject, while adding layers of dialog between us and nature.
Michael's Contemporary Art combines words and images under the theme of "Choose Joyful." Here, Michael's whimsical side takes precedence, and his digital drawing, consisting of strong colors and bold lines, combines with the art’s title to buoy the spirits as we face the daily challenges and questioning inherent in our "humanity” and common to us all.
His photographs and art are for sale and he welcomes commissions. There is much joy to be had in collaborating on specific pieces for your home or business establishment. Follow his daily posts on Instagram @michaelbendicott. Be sure to read the accompanying titles.
