“Self Portrait”-Michael West Length-1740mm Height-1010mm Width-600mm
In Willow, Ash and Stinging Nettle this piece is a reflection of my personality and characteristics as an artist. With the use of freely available local materials “I live in a willow growing area of outstanding natural beauty in Somerset, England.” Influenced by Vincent Van Gogh’s work “Van Gogh’s Chair” I chose the bike as society often uses anthropomorphism to reflect themselves within everyday objects for example a car may be male or female and often given a personality and sometimes even a name. Every single part of this bike has been painstakingly made by myself as with all artworks this carries the artists characteristics therefore becoming an extension of oneself.

I use a variety of materials and processes my methodology is consistent. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.
This process stimulates a visual dialogue between myself and my creations, that are predominantly metaphors for contemporary society. There may be many layers and meanings to my work in a combination of childhood and adult culture, enabling the work to have its own cryptic narrative.
