Michael Close

"... Art is not the truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand." from "Picasso Speaks" The Arts (New York) May, 1923.

As Early as the 1970's, in this abstract paintings set in triangular supports, Michael Close has sought the synthesis of both the intellect and the sensual in an attempt to arrive at some universal truth. The work with triangles led him to focus on images of the human face to which we all respond, more or less intensely: some eliciting emotional sensations, others appealing directly to our intellect. Both share an essential rank as we have as much need of one as the other.

He has enjoyed great success in Macedonia and in the collections of Museum of Contemporary Art (Skopje), Academy of Fine Arts, National Gallery (Skopje), Ohrid City Museum and Struga City Museum.
