Welcome! My name is Michael Stevens Wiggs, and
I'm an artist living in Baltimore. Although I've been
drawing, painting, sculpting, etc., all my life, it is
only in the last five years or so that I've focused all
my creative energies onto canvas.
I try to create pieces that invite you in,
that draw you closer for a more intimate experience.
I impose no absolute meaning to any work, the viewer
is left to explore the composition, intrepret any
symbolism, and derive meaning based exculsively on
their own world view.
That's not to say my work has no underlying
meaning to me. Every artist's life experiences are at
some level channeled into their work. Using the stream
of consciousness method, I can comfortably describe
my work as follows:
Encompassing many experiences.
Strange perspectives and vistas,
Shadows in an empty world.
Lonliness and desolation.
Questioning the nature of permanence.
The relentless, irreversible flow of time.
The organic, the physical, the sensual,
Love and loss, longing,
The meaning of perfection (if any).
The journey into the inevitable darkness.
You know, stuff like that. At present, only some
of my Abstract works are shown on this site. Soon, I'll
post my latest series of Surrealist paintings.
