"Art is functional, purposeful and has a definite use. Art is the premium tool for apprehending the connection between the conscious and subconscious mind. An artist must, (at least), do part of the work of pointing the attention of the viewer towards a concrete something. An artist who insists that the viewer do all of the work of understanding the art, is giving up the responsibility of the artist to bring something to eat to the party. To be at the balance point between what you know and what you feel is to be an artist."
Michael Nolte graduated in 1982 from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He has been involved in the art casting industry since 1984 and is a co-founder and co-owner of Vanguard Sculpture Services. This is his first official art showing. Maybe.
