“My content as a painter/printmaker, is rooted in cultural and personal issues,” said Michael Bush. “It is at times politically motivated, yet in other instances most spiritual and very personal. Most often I make use of personal symbols or metaphors with the express intent of confronting or challenging, the viewers personal point of view. To either validate or challenge visual ad intellectual understanding. It is my desire to develop a dialogue both visual and intellectual between the viewer and the work itself.”
His Wife’s jewelry work is described as ranging from “romantic, to playful, to exotic.”
She often uses combinations of sterling silver, copper and brass on the same piece to add definition to the composition. In addition to semi-precious stones and pearls, she loves to incorporate artistic Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystals and ceramic floral elements. Her work has a sophisticated, global feel, utilizing various techniques, including metalsmithing, cold connection, wirework, enameling and beading.
