Michael Greenwald’s art has been exhibited from New York to California. What a great opportunity to bring this Cleveland artist’s work into your daily life. Colorful and layered in depth this collection will spark conversation and inspire creativity. Mike has asked that the proceeds from his work featured in the Design for Good Shop by TWIST be donated to Neighborhood Pets. Recognizing the many benefits of the human animal bond, Neighborhood Pets supports people with financial needs by helping them keep their pets in their homes. They do this by providing access to affordable pet care, resources, information and other supportive services in Cleveland.
“My abstract works are a significant departure. They are an exploration of color, pattern and optical depth. They are created by slowly building up alternating layers of paint and clear epoxy resin. As the layers of resin and paint build, a striking optical effect is created, magnifying the design and enhancing the colors. The paintings have a great sense of depth, increased by the actual physical depth of the resin. Their creation is very process oriented with multiple steps: painting, sanding, mixing and pouring resin, then repeated multiple times for each piece. It’s time consuming but the resulting paintings are glossy, bold, bright and satisfying.”
