“Here is a smattering of work from the 80′s to the present. The muse seems to lead me. I suppose once you get the chops, the whole thing becomes “What do I want to see?”. One then paints what one wants to look at. It’s all fun.”-Michael Dvortcsak, 2014
Michael Dvortcsak is an artist whose work defies categorization. Although his paintings speak to the intellect, they contain elements that are as primal as a scream. His imagery is realistic, yet dreamlike; bathed in light, but shrouded in mystery. Is Dvortcsak showing us a prehistoric version of ourselves, or is he involving us in a parallel universe? Dvortcsak’s masterful use of the human figure, landscape and still life is the means by which he helps the viewer understand the connection between art and science, and myth versus reality. Dvortcsak’s credentials include bachelor of art and master of fine arts degrees from the University of California at Santa Barbara, where he has also lectured and taught for several years. He has been a visiting lecturer at California State University, Long Beach, and a visiting artist at the University of Texas, El Paso. His works are in many private and public collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Chemical Bank in New York and Mitsubishi Corporation in Tokyo.
