Still loyal to his first love, painting, Michael nonetheless discovered something new during his travels.
During a trip into the jungle in Asia, wood emerges as an obvious mean of self-expression for him.
In this material tortured by time and weather, he found a nobility, a spark of life, revealing a pure and simple aestheticism; a primal beauty, a kind of universal art language.
