About Michael Caines
MICHAEL CAINES most recent exhibitions include Cat Art Show Los Angeles, Mammalia at Galerie Youn in Montreal, and Volta NYC with Katharine Mulherin, a solo booth featured in the New York Times. Caines has been selected for a number of artist residencies, including the Santa Fe Art Institute and The Bemis Center.
Past awards include fellowships from the Avery and Chalmers foundations. His book, Revelations & Dog, a graphic version of the Book of Revelations, was released in March, 2010. A ten year survey of his animal and human themed work, Wild/Tame, was exhibited at the Art Gallery of Peterborough in Canada in 2011.
My paintings of dogs, cats and human figures slyly reference, seventeenth century Dutch portraiture, Baroque pictures, and color field painting, presenting the viewer with subtly satirical portraits of animals and humans who are at once inviting and incredulous.
