Michael Nelson, Hold on Tight
Michael Nelson, Part 1 of 5
Hold on Tight  Oil on Canvas, 36"x48", 2001

Shawn Valiquette: "I have known Mike since junior high. He's humorous, intelligent, and his paintings inspire me! After seeing his art show Monday Music, I couldn't get the image of the painting Hold On Tight out of my head. It was so moving I wrote this poem."

Noticing Completely
 
Noticing completely
Everything present here is being registered
I'm fully awake
Listen dear people, my song is together:
Cool streets and the summer beat
My arm is close by you baby.
You and me foreseeing the day
     planning the day
     fixing the day
This day here is a gift to behold
Truth be told, down here were playing the music.
Nourish the taste which is now in your mouth
You have that something I breathe upon,
let it be known love is truth
Remember this moment.
It carries you to a place familiar, feel free to sit or stand in your zone.
There are pleasures here before you, now collect them as you see. Every one here together please take this beautiful offering.
You and me foreseeing the day
     planning the day
     fixing the day
Now love is complete.

Poem by Shawn Valiquette.

Shawn loves art. "I began writing short stories in grade six . . . my classmates enjoyed them and my teachers were intrigued by them" he says. He also loves acting and music. You can contact him at 416-530-9603.

MICHAEL NELSON'S GALLERIES: NELSONISMS

 
ARTIST'S STATEMENT
I have recently been inspired by my travels in Amsterdam and London, and by my experience of Toronto's night life.

I draw on my personal experience of the world around me, and the people I know, to communicate my vision of the artist within each of us. This collection shows my continuing development as a young artist. I want to paint both the highs and lows of life. I want to show the exquisite cityscapes and the vivid party scenes -- but I don't want to shy away from the very real undertones of depression and violence that are part of city life.

I am thrilled to have won the coveted artist of the year "Downie" award from the Etobicoke School of the Arts. I am proud of the scholarship I won at the Ontario College of Art. The classical animation program at Sheridan College was a mind-expanding experience.

Although I paint in oils on canvas or board, I also make extensive use of digital technology and the Internet to promote art around the world. To see more of my paintings, please visit my website.
