Art critic Reed Busk said, “Being surrounded by [Michael] Kalish's work makes one feel like the best days are yet to come.” If you've had the pleasure of seeing his twenty-foot “Love” sculpture, you'd know this to be true. Everything Michael makes is meant to aesthetically please, but it's also intended to move us. With an eye for architectural design and fine art, his mediums aren't always conventional, from cut bits of license plates to recycled automobile parts. There are also always dimensions to Michael's work. His “love” sculpture turned table-sized candelabra looks like an intricate, geometric puzzle from most angles, but at an exact vantage point the word emerges. However you assign meaning to his work, his goal is to get us thinking about what's within, what's below the surface, and what was always there if only we turned our heads. Michael lives in Los Angeles.
