MA FINE ART, SUNDERLAND, 2017
Michael Vågsten is interested in a form of narrative painting where people exist in a story and are part of a timeless dramatic setting. His figures are often undertaking some unknown or mysterious activity. They are located in the remains of a town or industrial area, or within in an anonymous desolate rural context.
Vagsten is interested in trying to synthesize the traditional values of painting with contemporary ideas and wants his painting to be a reflection of the contemporary anxiety about the environment particularly his own vision of a post-apocalyptic future.
