About the Artist
“The profundity of discovery
is that it demands ownership. One cannot discover for someone else.
Discovery is intensely personal, it is learning, it is the process of
making connections that will last a lifetime. Discovery is painless, it
is sought out from the
moment of birth and driven by that wonderful
innate human trait, curiosity.”
During his childhood on an isolated cattle ranch high in the Rocky
Mountains of Southwest Colorado, making play with the available common
natural stuff of mountain life, Michael Oppenheimer came to appreciate
the limitless connectedness of all that is.
Deeply influenced by those early years of exploration, Michael has
created works of art reminding us to take note of the complexity and
beauty of that which we might have accepted as ordinary in our everyday
|Presently, Michael is the founding Member and Principal
Artist of Windy Hill Art, LLC. Michael is now working to make the forces
of nature, such as the wind and humidity, become manifest in surprising,
inviting, interactive kinetic works of art. His work may be seen at
various outdoor galleries as well as his own eight-acre art park
adjacent to his studio located in Northwest Washington State.
