Michael Garlington is a photographer, master printer and sculptor who creates installations, photo-sculptures and photographic works with elaborate sculptural frames. The works in this exhibition reflect human emotions and experiences using 4 x 5 film and mixed media. Some of the works are created in collaboration with his partner Natalia Bertotti.
Raised in Petaluma, California, where he lives and works, Michael was influenced early on by a wide mix of characters. He started working at his mother and step father’s photo Lab, Splinder Photographic, at 17. He embarked on an artistic mission at 21, creating backdrops for his figurative photo-sculptures. In 2000, he traveled with a group of artists across the US and Europe in PhotoCar, a car covered with his photos, gaining attention along the way. Since 2004, Michael has been included in Photo LA, Photo NY and Photo SF. He has exhibited internationally. Major projects include PhotoHouse created for San Francisco CameraWorks in 2010, the 40 feet tall PhotoChapel created at Burning Man in 2013 and a 60 foot tall Totem of Confessions in 2014 also at Burning Man. The pieces created for Burning Man were burned down in spectacular fiery deaths. Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti, who have been working together since 2013, now plan to create lasting installations such as a four ways confessional to be installed at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, in June 2017.
