Michael Corner

"I make images.
I do not know why I make them.
I do not know who they are for.
I do so compulsively.

To not make images is to put down a delicate thread I chanced to pick up,
if I put it down I fear I will be unable to pick it up again.
I am looking for that which exists in the space between words."

Michael moved from the prairies to Banff twenty-two years ago. He started teaching himself to
paint eight years ago. He lives with his cats Steven and Augustus and his dog Bertram.
