About Michael

Michael Zigmond was born in Sandusky, Ohio, and received his BFA from Bowling Green State University in 1984.

He attributes the subjects of his paintings, all derived from his immediate ‘reality’, to his fascination with the effects created by intense light on familiar objects. ‘Abstractions of light and shadow can make the ordinary look disquietingly transient,’ he says.

Zigmond calls his work process descriptive—combining photographic reference and direct observation, with a sensitivity towards the tension between two- and three-dimensional qualities. ‘I never cease to be amazed at the variety with which nature can provide the makings of a composition,’ says Zigmond.

His work has been exhibited extensively across the United States and included in numerous corporate collections.

It looks nice, but the second photo seems pointless and abstract for the sake of abstraction.
