Description:

Mike Fazos took to the A.R.T. technique right out of the gate. In just a few years, Fazos has become a prolific artist, creating close to 15 paintings. His artwork is often inspired by nature and weather, evident by his expressive titles. His paintings consist of luminous color washes, often infused with metallic or hints of bright tones, that envelop the canvas.

 

Fazos’ work has been exhibited at the Worcester Art Museum, Hudson Hall at the Historic Hudson Opera House, Good Purpose Gallery and the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, among other venues.

“Mike is very attentive and deliberate in his painting. He works quietly with an often sustained focus. He prefers to use up all of one color on a palette before moving onto another. His subjects are often drawn from natural events and the nonfigurative occurrence of elements and forms in nature.

 

When he is painting, Mike is apt to deeply and broadly wash a canvas with a color, almost as if scrubbing the color into the weaving of the canvas, trying to transform the actual texture. Mike will sometimes layer these labored washes over and over with many colors. The color that may be showing up in the foreground of the finish product may have four or five other colors completely spread underneath that don’t necessarily penetrate through to that final dimension but add to the overall texture, and irrigate out, into, and off the edges, suggesting it’s a piece of something much larger.” – Stefanie Weber (CATA Faculty)
