The emotion of a single moment in time is what motivates Michael Guinane to paint. Whether it be a still and quiet moment of an individual, or capturing the total environment created by multiple figures in one place, his work allows you to see deeper in to this time and place. Michael paints to create an atmosphere for the viewer to feel. Whether it be a moment in history or the artist’s personal experience, a quiet winter night in the park or a busy city street, these works capture the feeling and mood one gets from being in a certain place or time. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Michael Guinane moved to Columbus in 1996 to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design. He graduated with a BFA majoring in illustration in 2000. Michael continues to live and work in Columbus showing in galleries, public venues and doing privately commissioned works that are shown throughout the country. He is represented by the Sharon Weiss Gallery in Columbus.
