Michael St. Amand by Nicolas Berdysheff

Michael St. Amand (May 12, 1958) born in Danbury, Connecticut, an American painter and digital artist, studied art at the Wooster Arts Center in Connecticut and at the Art Students League of New York. However, St. Amand’s artistic development was largely the result of self-teaching.

There is nothing “quick” about St. Amand’s work. His art needs time to be ingested, digested, and contemplated. Messages are coming from all sides — political, social, cultural, sexual, and aesthetical. St. Amand juxtaposes the sacred with the profane and leaves the viewers to determine where on the continuum their perceptions lie. “All the objects are just objects. As with all art, it is what the viewer brings to it,” St. Amand says of his work. “It is the viewer’s own – very personal – reactionary emotion or self-analysis. Whether it is disdain or shock, passion or compassion, every person will create his or her own truth attached to the work.” This is at the heart of St. Amand’s work. As art, his pieces are unique and visually engaging. As social commentary, they are thought evoking and provoking. His work inspires conversation and insight into three worlds: the artist’s, the one in which we all share, and the very personal one within each individual.
