“My work references structures: Personal, societal, psychological, emotional and biological. I use abstract and figurative elements to create pieces that bear testament to our journey through life: Our entry and subsequent flourishing, our road to extinction and alas our demise; the fitting in or not, the weave, the tattered tapestry. I sometimes use repeats and patterns to grid this as a metaphor. Skin Art (tatoos) and biological references also appear in my work.” Michael Worobec, July 2017
