About Michael Standefer

I hope you see the creative process involved with my pieces, an attempt to instill passion for the viewer. I want you to feel the hands-on process- ‘a sculptural touch’- and the labor required to create such a piece. I want you to remark, “I have never seen such an object”, “Where are these objects found”, or “I don’t have the vaguest idea where that came from- other than a dream”… because art is about dreaming.
That makes me happy for I have succeeded in presenting a sculpture that introduces new ideas you had not previously contemplated, or you are mystified about where to find the materials, and maybe more important you want such a piece for your home.
Finally, I want you to struggle with the conceptual language of the artwork, and if I cause you a certain ill-at-ease feeling which makes you pause and hopefully say, “Wow that is really something I never saw before, and further, I wonder where the idea came from”… then I have accomplished a good thing.
I will have involved you in my creative process and hopefully you also enjoy the piece as much as I did making it.
Thank You, Michael Standefer
