Wk 9 – Artist Interview – Michael Rollins

Michael Rollins is majoring in Fine Arts and is hoping to complete his BFA very soon. The paintings in his show “New Digs” are very inspiring. Rollins states that he does not paint from a reference, but rather he paints freely embodying the product of tension and balance. His work portrays the physical, expressive, and animalistic aspects of his personality.

Personally, I love the use of texture in his paintings. As you can see in the photo below, the layers of paint give off such a sense of depth and roughness. His work is very vibrant in color and significance. The paintings aren’t as concrete as we’d like them to be, but that’s what makes them so uncertain and great.
