Michael Hermesh is a figurative artist that works in ceramic, bronze, plaster, paint and drawing mediums. The scale of his art ranges from small to monumental works including five major sculptures in the Okanagan. His figurative work juxtaposes the spiritual with the banal with an acute awareness of the dynamic nature of narrative. Integrity is his highest guiding principal which is exposed through the personal connections that others have to his work. Michael Hermesh continues to question the purpose of art and his own personal purpose of producing art. Frank the Baggage Handler is one of his most recognizable works.
