Michael Voss


Michael Voss lives and works in New York


exhibition atramentum  from nov 12th - dec 13th 2014

exhibition this quiet commotion  from sept 3rd - oct 1st 2011


As a painter I believe there are as many ways to make a painting as there are possibilities to do anything else in life.
My work has been to explore some of these possibilities.
Therefore, there is not a preconceived set of rules that drive my work, but an explorative, quite intuitive and open-ended process, that is aware of not only the improvisorial character of the painting at hand, but also of  the provisional character of the notion of painting itself.
The single painting achieves its resolution through it’s own means.
Or, in other words: the painting is specific.
