San Francisco based Michael Page’s work (previously featured here) offers the viewer an optic alternative to the visual reality of life, as we know it. Page introduces narratives of strange, phantasmagoric and frenzy nature. Intense and rich color pallet additionally provides a sense of vivid hallucination or hazy sensation from the depth of unconsciousness.
Regardless of the technique or the approach, it is the narrative which pops up and offers a full insight into his work. The different reality of his is inhibited with unusual creatures or entities. It seems as if these are manifestations, perhaps, of human delusions or just a specter of dreamscapes and alterations fulfilled with dynamic movement.
