"some strong at broken places"
Michael Schreiner, "some strong at broken places," acrylic on canvas, 48" x 48".
Known for his bold geometric abstractions exploring the boundary of the canvas, local painter Michael Schreiner adopts a new palette and muse in his latest series. Inspired by the concise language of poetry, Schreiner sees each brush stroke akin to a word or line, and uses paint to express syntax, meter and imagery. The contrasting colours and forms shape a language within the paintings, which mimic the crispness of a well-written verse.
