Name: Michael Guinane
Statement: The emotion of a single moment in time is what motivates Michael Guinane to paint. Whether it be a still and quiet moment of an individual, or capturing the total environment created by multiple figures in one place, his work allows you to see deeper into the subject. Michael paints to create an atmosphere for the viewer to feel. Whether it be a moment in history or the artist's personal experience, a quiet winter night in the park or a busy city street, his work captures the feeling and mood one gets from being in a certain place or time. Much of this can be found in the artist's view of the city of Columbus and it's iconic arches. In the same way that people moving through the city will stand out from the city surrounding them, there is still a connection between both the figure and their environment as they become one.
