Artist / Personal Statement
Michael Gibbons, a self-taught painter, was born in Portland, Oregon in 1943. He began painting in oils while still in elementary school. At Benson Polytechnic Institute, he attracted the attention of, and was invited to membership in the Oregon Society of Artists at 16, the youngest in the organizations history. He was awarded all honors in the Scholastic Art Awards competition by the time of his graduation. Forsaking city life in 1978 for the wilds of the Oregon coast marked a turning point in Gibbons’ life, art and career giving birth to his reputation as a “regionalist”. Portable field equipment, solitude and focusing on a limited geographical area have fostered his very personal, intimate portrayals of the land he and his wife Judith have called home for over thirty years. “My most powerful work comes from here where I live”, Michael Gibbons said on his return from working in Scotland and Ireland for a month. “But travelling stretches complacencies to the point of breaking . It is a challenge!”
