Michael produces metalwork using a complex alchemy to create 'floating plates.' These modern works are an extraordinary counterpart to our Central Coast esthetic.  

Michael Ackerman is a builder, sculptor, painter, actor and teacher. His approach to creating art is organic and intuitive. His Artist Statement (abbreviated here): 
“I make things for one purpose. To be alive. I don’t care about the form or the line or the color. I want it raw like it really is. It’s a constant struggle to get out of the way…”

Michael is a resident of Cambria, CA.
