Studio Sundays: Michael Rollins
"I've created an abstract environment in which its spaces are always changing and expanding. Each individual work exists for people to explore, as a view to another place inside of the environment. There are recurring elements that move from piece to piece, and provide an abstract narrative. Things between images are revealed, extracted, and exchanged.
I'm interested in buildups and breakdowns, interaction between disparate elements, and the chaotic disruption that is present in these narratives.
My practice is grounded in drawing and painting. Recent experimentation with stop motion animation has allowed for me to introduce qualities of time into the abstract environment."
