work by Michael Secor

My work is derived directly from my surroundings and daily experience. Being outside is my inspiration. I paint images of places that have an intriguing space, one that has a specific physical feeling and visual effect that captivates me. The painting then becomes about color relationships and how to use them in order to create a similar spatial feeling. The place acts as a very important and personal starting point in what develops into a design emphasizing color and space.  The design reflects an appreciation for formal issues. The landscape and its elements remain essential, for painting the local scene allows me to interact further with and understand better my environment, where I live.
