Michael A. Palmer (American b. 1942)

“I am a painter, so for the most part my work has to speak for itself.” states Michael Palmer, an artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad. “I approach a painting surface with a few, if any, preconceived ideas and let some spontaneous dashes of random color kick off a chain of actions that suggest a direction and eventually, a general subject.”

The artist's work deals with the flow of color and light patterns, that suggest a landscape or figure viewed from an unusual perspective. He creates a mood using color that slides into color, abruptly cut by a strong contrast.

Palmer's works have received numerous awards in national juried exhibitions and are displayed in museum and private collections around the world including The Seattle Museum of Art, the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, The Rockefeller Family Collection and the Gertrude Mellon Collection.
