According to Michael, Klari 2 had "started to form in my studio before my trip to Tbilisi, Georgia. I left the painting behind and embarked on a journey with the excitement and wonder for things to come. While in Tbilisi, I was impacted by the mystic Caucasus Mountains and the undulating black sea; but most importantly, I was moved by the wild whispers of the winds in Tbilisi. When I came back to California, I felt like it was all a dream. I got back into my studio and processed all I have dreamed"
Elisa Contemporary Art has been representing Michael Buscemi since 2012. Here's a little about the artist:
Micheal Buscemi was born in upstate New York. As a young child, Michael traveled all around the country with his family. In 1986 they made their home in San Francisco bay area.
According to California artist, Michael Buscemi, " In a quest to get back to simplicity, I found myself exploring cut paper, and mixed- media collages. This process allowed me to build constructs and change composition with a rapid immediacy. These sculptural elements allow me to work in unison layer after layer; creating shadow, contrast, depth and movement. I love to work with sense of spontaneity; however I am also engaged in the highly repetitive meticulous process. I am inspired by the rhythm and forms that emerge from the shadow. I see this as the ever-changing evolution process."
Michael began his white-on-white paper collage series in 2012. His work has become part of collections throughout California, New York and Europe.
