Michael Hedges Biography

Michael was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. While in high school Michael spent two years 
studying at the Art Institute of Chicago before going on to receive his B.A. in Studio Art 
from Loras College in Dubuque, IA in 1998.

Since graduation from Loras, Michael has been exhibiting and selling his artwork throughout the 
Chicago-land area. In addition to gallery showings pieces of Michael's work hang permanently 
in corporations through the Chicagoland area and Iowa and have sold into private collections.

Michael Hedges Statement

My paintings are a synthesis of color, line, form and texture. They begin as a problem of two or more 
color relationships to be explored through form. The form is loosely defined by a drawing that 
acts as a skeleton and ecto-skeleton both beneath and above the finished work. The application of 
the media to the painting surface is of utmost importance to me. The paint is applied with great 
bursts of energy, creating a surface, if I am successful, that is supercharged with texture and color. I 
work multiple, usually around 10, paintings at the same time, all centered on the original 
problem. This multiple approach allows me to go in different directions, very quickly building the 
energy that is critical to a successful painting. I strive to create intense, even and stunning 
color relationships that are balanced by form and texture into a controlled elegance. The challenge 
here is to create a vibration in the work that energizes it without separating.
