Michael Loveland born 1973 Miami, FL
Loveland explores the different ways we are presented with information and how we absorb and process it in our daily lives, from hand-painted street signs to high-end corporate AD campaigns seen on billboards, and strives to find new light and meaning in common, mundane materials. Loveland’s latest body of works are cut and collaged from his own photographic images printed on discarded materials such as old signs, discarded wood, and glass sheets that were once used as table tops. These chance encounters with found objects have played into Loveland’s work continually.
Loveland graduated from the New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida in 1991 and earned his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland in 1994.
Loveland’s works have been exhibited in galleries, art fairs throughout the United States and Europe. His work is also included in many private collections, such as the Margulies Collection in Miami, the Virgin Hotel Chicago Collection, along with permanent collections at
The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York
Brooklyn Art Museum New York
Perez Art Museum Miami
Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami.
