Michael Gibson

Photo from Paper City, May 2006

Tonight in Atlanta, artist Michael Gibson will be giving a short talk at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Gibson, who's work is displayed in the loft he shares with wife, Carolyn Carr, has been profiled in such prestigious publications as the New York Times and Art in America.

The orientation and density of the color shapes are carefully balanced in Gibson's works, and the allover distribution of the shapes gives the impression that the painting is part of a larger whole. Luminous biomorphic forms appear to extend beyond the edges of the panels, suggesting these paintings could be part of some continuous molecular configuration. -Rebecca Dimling Cochran, Art in America

Couldn't have said it better myself. Artist talks begin tonight at 7 p.m. Click here to see more photos from the loft pictured above.

I always love to hear artists talks about what inspires them. What drives them. Being a artist is a amazing perfection.
