Michael Vogt plays with the viewer and their comprehension of human structures and the habitation of these spaces. Formally composed yet disquieting subjects, unusual layerings take the viewer in separate directions which creates questions. These heterotopic images capture real used spaces, though somewhat familiar, thoughtful collaged elements provoke and unsettle you the viewer. Vogts’ opening statement on his site places his practice concisely:
“man-made structures, the passing of time, and a different ordering are the cornerstones of my practice”.
The diverse body of work is wide ranging and leaves me inspired. Click here for his website.
