In Michael Dandley’s gouache scenes render astral—and sometimes, cataclysmic—phenomenons happening both on Earth and far beyond. Also characteristic of his work are unexpected hues in each painting, whether it’s showing degradation of the planet or explorative adventures.
Michael Dandley, an artist based in New Hampshire, crafts vibrant, transformative works out of the ordinary. At times, the artist is commenting on our impact on the natural world; elsewhere, he captures the engrossing beauty out of our sight. Though not all carry the surreal weight of his wilder images, all contain a certain serenity in the artist’s choices of palette and perspective.
