Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 9 2010
Michael Oliveri’s latest works of art explore the beautiful but harsh biological micro environments that exist virtually unseen in daily life. The pictures often appear extraterrestrial, but actually depict the little explored microscopic vistas of Earth. The micrographs cause the viewer to be lured in, based on what first looks familiar to the eye.
In regard to these photographic works, Michael shares that “the Innerspace micrographs are about studying the relationship between the micro and macro environments that surround us.”
A Los Angeles native, Michael received his MFA in New Genres from UCLA and a BFA in Sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute. He is currently the chair and creator of the ArtX department at the University of Georgia.
His work is conceptually based utilizing a wide range of media from large computer prints to multi-media installations and performances. Live animals, immigrant workers, hydroponics, radio signal technology, effects processors, video and photography are examples of his unlimited palette. Mr. Oliveri currently lives and works in Athens, Georgia.
