Michael Foers

Artist Biography

"Perspective in a landscape is not to be confused with depth. Perspective delights the eye and satisfies the mind. Depth imparts that ineffable sense of space which draws the viewer into the centre of the painting. Michael Foers has the ability to capture depth in his paintings with much the same ease that he captures the play of light and shadow."
--John Mayer, Magazin Art, 2005.

His works, inspired by nature and the effects of light on organic forms, reside in the realm between realism and the abstract. Foers' bold use of colour highlights a sense of depth in his paintings and distinguishes his
work from that of other artists.

Foers spent many of his formative years working in northern Canada as a trapper, prospector, and lumberjack. Always sketching in his spare time, he picked up a paintbrush one rainy day and discovered a passion that would change the rest of his life.

Now after many years of painting, Foers' artistic approach oscillates around stretching the limits of reality and colour while keeping a fresh, spontaneous feel to his paintings.

Foers' works are collected by both private and corporate collections throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
