"I love working on unique pieces that have conversations and histories within them."
Beitz creates large-scale installations and sculpture inspired by the social, personal, and material functions of furniture.
His work has been shown internationally and he has completed large scale public art installations around the globe.
Michael Beitz skillfully combines furniture design and meticulous craftsmanship with the more conceptual concerns of contemporary art. Tapping into the cultural significance of domestic furniture, such as dining tables and living room couches, Beitz ultimately subverts each object’s functionality to create a more dynamic interactive experience.
Although humorous and playful, these works also speak to the complexity of human relationships and reveal deeper psychological impacts of our experience with everyday objects and design.
