About the Artist
Michael Tronzo, is an American painter born in 1953 in Rochester, NY. In the 1970’s, Michael attended the Art Students League in NYC. He currently lives and works in Eliot, Maine.
“…this work has the force of the impersonal, but it is to the faithfulness of a singularly unique experience that Michael Tronzo’s paintings summon us; his is a tense but patient work, at once tempestuous and still, concentrated in on itself, in the explosive brevity of its own instant or instance of inspiration - its most real, most burning present - with a power of image and affirmation that, for all the spontaneous decisiveness, for all the passion and immediacy of its expression, yet keeps the slowness, the continuity, and the understanding of the uninterrupted.”
