Michael’s distinctive, elongated figures, solitary or grouped, represent our environment, our families, our neighbours, and the society we live in.
The work of Michael Speller is not easily defined; it may be abstract or representational, static or dynamic, solid or ethereal. He is an artist who is never restricted by traditional sculptural concepts, but references a whole range of ideas and influences and brings them together in a harmonious combination of sculpture and space, both exquisitely composed. With this balance and harmony, he achieves great beauty and equilibrium in his art.
“My work using the human form attempts to find a rhythm in our lives whilst accepting our faults and frailties. Balance I believe does not come from plumb lines and tape measures, but from reflecting our imperfections and idiosyncrasies and counter balancing them with our positive attributes in order to achieve a visual and spiritual harmony, both with ourselves and with the world around us.”
