Currently living in NYC, Michael Sorgatz was born in Chicago and lived in California where he earned a BFA degree at the Art Institute of Southern California. Sorgatz publishes the websites Art in Brooklyn and Art in New York City which promote local artists. Sorgatz’ paintings of figures in urban landscapes depict the constant evolution of the city, exploring the boundary between abstraction and realism. Working from digitally manipulated photographs, he systematically breaks down the image by overlaying a geometric pattern and reducing the image to a series of simple shapes. Using an improvisational method, he applies the paint with a variety of tools such as brushes and painting knives. This technique creates a highly textured surface as layers of paint are applied to build the picture, obscuring identities and context. The resulting images portray a dynamic state of turbulence where shapes collide, merge, and separate to create new forms. For more information about the artist, visit http://www.mikesorgatz.com/
