With the Internet and social networks, we get more and more aware that people out there have the same first and last name. Michael Abraham is one such artist I was researching, when I came across two very different artists. Michael Abraham the younger makes geometric art work with beautiful hard edges and in a few pieces show exposed wood. The one above is a simple and created with elegant lines. I love the very clean lines and minimal soul of the work. Abraham's sculptures reference gems and naturally grown crystals.
Michael Abraham the older is figurative with crazy narratives. The work reminds me of my professor at UNT, Robert Jessup's early work.
