"I create because I'm curious, and I can only hope others are curious about what I create..." – Michael Patrick Thieme
Introducing Michael Patrick Thieme, a creative visionary hailing from the vibrant artistic scene west of Chicago. Although his professional journey led him into the realm of architecture, his heart has always belonged to the world of artistic expression. Michael's passion for drawing, painting, and design has been an integral part of his life since his earliest memories.
A true aficionado of color and a devoted minimalist, Michael approaches his art with precision and meticulous attention to detail. He crafts his pieces methodically, working line by line to construct immaculate abstract tableaus adorned with geometric patterns. This meticulous process allows him to explore the nuances of scale, proportion, density, and the subtle interplay of colors, line widths, and placements.
Michael's art bears the unmistakable imprint of his controlled and exacting style, enabling him to conjure a limitless array of concepts. His artistic journey has been profoundly influenced by luminaries such as Ellsworth Kelly, Josef Albers, and Kenneth Noland—three revered masters of geometry, scale, and color.
It is with immense pride that Michael Patrick Thieme makes his grand artistic debut at the prestigious Morton Contemporary Art Gallery. This marks a significant milestone in his creative journey, as he ventures into the world of sharing his artwork with the public on a grand scale.
