Michael Steer is a local painter who was born and raised in Barnsley. He studied Interdisciplinary Art and Design at University Campus Barnsley and currently works out of his studio in Wombwell.
Michael's work concerns the ambiguity and connotations of language, exploring how statements can have profoundly different interpretations depending on the person viewing them. His paintings invite the audience to consider the hidden depths of simple statements and discover the inherent poetry of words.
Michael is part of the 2020 Civic Artist Residency Programme.
