Obelisk Home

Obelisk Home at the Inspired Commerce Building, 214 W. Phelps, The featured artist for August will be Michael Bane! Michael moved to Springfield about a year ago from Fort Worth and is our newest gallery artist. It would be difficult to pinpoint a style that he paints as he continually explores different techniques and subject matter, but his craftsmanship and love of painting remains constant. In his newest collection, “A Return to Happiness”, Michael focuses on the light-hearted in a time that has been difficult for all. He uses colors and lines to create vibrancies and to reflect on human connections. 

“Over the past year or so, my creativity has been put to the test. After dealing with a large amount of adversarial energy, my focus recently has been on happiness; I wanted to paint happiness. To do this, I needed to unplug and plug myself back into life. A restarting, if you will. So, I have redirected my thoughts to “connectivity” in personifying these paintings. I’ve intended to create what I refer to as a community. Lines may vary, widths may vary, but together they create a harmonious unity. And this I where I have found happiness.” -Michael Bane
