Michael Solomon’s work is an extension of himself, a reflection of his soul, his passion, his pain, his joy, and his resilience. Each piece is painstakingly executed, bold, and sophisticated.
His medium has evolved over the years from mostly glass mosaics to a combination of glass acrylics and granulated metallics layered in resin. Solomon scores, smashes and nips shards of glass into slivers and chips using them to accentuate the flow / motion and tree like patterns in the initial painting that acts as the foundation for each creation.
“As the layers evolve, more and more detail is created giving the viewer the sense that they are looking into a glass painting. ”
His most recent body of work offers patterns that virtually jump forward, pulling the eye across the voids to reveal one unified scene. The golden Aspen trees are in rich contrast to a purple haze background with tiny chips of dicrhoic glass sprinkled on top which sparkle like stars in the night.
Michael takes pride in the impact his work has on the viewing public. “Nothing is more exciting than watching people’s reactions to my choice of colors, textures and use of glass.
