The Art of Michael Lott

[image_frame align="left" height="300" width="300" prettyphoto="false"][/image_frame] Michael Lott is an abstract artist whose work is heavily inspired by his travels, the healing of our relationship with nature, humanity's movement towards spiritual integration, as well as the worlds opened up to him via dreams and the collective unconscious. The unique style that Michael's work takes on is inspired by synesthesia, a "condition" in which Michael's senses overlap and he perceives music and sound visually as a flowing, interwoven dance of colors and abstract patterns. Michael believes that his work holds rich subconscious symbolism, and that it can be seen as a foreign yet universally familiar language. www.michaellottart.com
