Michael Jefferson (b. 1973) is an artist living and working in Oak Pak, Illinois.  A graduate of the University of Michigan, Michael’s practice focuses on oil painting and mixed drawing techniques that explore gestural mark-making that coalesces into recognizable themes.  The work skews perspective and scale, intertwining art-historical constructs of abstraction, still life, landscape and figuration.  As an expert in modern design, the work often mixes furniture and object archetypes with more specific objects from the modern movement.
