Michael Allgoeweris a Montreal born artist, living and working in Hamilton, Ontario.
His work consists mainly of assemblage-based sculptural components, which form larger installations. These pieces usually reference the historical and mythical past to elucidate universal, metaphysical themes. Recurrent motifs are symbols such as the shield, the skull, arrows and architectural references ranging from the gilded picture frame to cathedral floor plans.
His paintings are abstract and are focused on an inner logic with a minimalist approach to form and content. This work is rigorous and adheres to structures that are capable of encompassing a myriad of possibilities.
Ongoing projects include Trespass: interventions in abandoned urban sites, and DidacticMuseum: an ongoing collaborative conceptual work.
He has shown at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant, Burlington Art Centre and the Grimsby Public Art Gallery. An outdoor installation was exhibited at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and he has taken part in the Ice Follies Biennial in North Bay. He has had a recent solo exhibition at the McMaster Museum of Art.
He is represented by bcontemporary in Hamilton, Ontario.
