“Nature is balanced. Nature is energy in life and restoration. We need only to look at the animals of our planet to see that all life is connected and allow them to serve as an example of how to all live in harmony.” – Mike Weber
Mike Weber’s art is a combination of paint and his nature photography, mostly captured in the wilderness of America’s National Parks. His unique form of Mixed Media is about the craft and process of layering materials. The colors, textures and patterns are inspired by earthly landscapes, decaying signage from human life, and decaying German and Dutch homesteads that he played in as a child in the Midwest. Each piece connects a global audience with a combination of materials and images that look perfect and ruined at the same time, juxtaposed to create rhythm, harmony and coherence.
