Michael Prosee

Michael Prosee’s practice stresses the multiplicity and ambiguity of perception, reception, and production. Michael views his artworks as enigmas that elude concrete interpretation and pinpoint definability. Their essence is feelable and detectable, but also indescribable and ungraspable. His paintings speak of the never-ending transient nature of human experience: Emotions and actions are constantly in flux, rendering personal satisfaction and a sense of ‘completeness’ a fleeting sensation that is palpable, but not obtainable.

Michael’s practice responds to and reinforces this. For him the act of painting is a never-ending story in which additions and improvements constantly present themselves. In turn, he offers the viewer a fluid viewing experience in which different elements of the paintings are revealed for undirected reflection.

Michael graduated with a Bachelor of Design and Visual Art from Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland in 2012. Michael has been a finalist in several art awards including; Peter and Sylvia Siddell Memorial Award 2014, National Contemporary Art Award 2014, Parkin Drawing Prize 2013 and the Eden Art Awards 2012. His work can be found in the James Wallace Arts Trust Collection.
