“I like when you can walk up to a painting and it’s a little abstract, and as you back up it all syncs together into something that makes sense, but if you walk up close it all falls apart,” says Brooklyn based artist Michael Kagan. Working out of his Brooklyn, New York based studio, the artist draws upon themes relating to space and man’s triumph over nature in his texture-heavy paintings. His self-described obsession with space imagery began as a child, when he would look at the moon through a telescope with his father, and later on, joined Space Camp.
