"Kiss Me features a North American Grizzly, one of my favorite animals. They've been over-hunted in California so I travel to Wyoming and Montana to watch these beautiful beasts during my backpacking adventures in The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. Grizzly's are one of the top three most dangerous animals in North America. They're stunning creatures. Kiss Me features a Grizzly named Brutus from Montana. He's appeared in many American films and I had the pleasure of photographing him up close for my artwork." Mike Weber, Artist "Kiss Me" was created on an archival, museum level wood art panel. The panel is easily installed and the neon can easily be turned on and off on the bottom side of the artwork's side cradle. All materials in Weber's work are archival and acid free. There is a UV resistant coating as well as a gloss resin coating on the surface of the mixed media. A microfiber clothe is included with special care and handling instructions for the preservation of this artwork. The side cradles are professionally finished, giving the wood a furniture smooth feel. The neon has a built-in transformer on the reverse side of the artwork. The neon appears reddish-pink when on and the glass tubes are white glass when turned off. Weber’s art is a combination of paint and his nature photography, mostly captured in the wilderness of America’s National Parks. His unique form of Mixed Media is about the craft and process of layering materials. The colors, textures and patterns are inspired by earthly landscapes, decaying signage from human life, and decaying German and Dutch homesteads that he played in as a child in the Midwest. Each piece connects a global audience with a combination of materials and images that look perfect and ruined at the same time, juxtaposed to create rhythm, harmony and coherence. Artist Statement Nature is balanced. Nature is energy in life and restoration. We need only look at the animals of our planet, which live in harmony, to see how life on our planet is connected thru nature. Animals should serve as an example to us of how to live in harmony. Nature is seen in the beating hearts of earth’s animals. By observing animals in nature we should be able to see what it provides and replicate this. They have an innate urge to be connected with the emotional context of their surroundings. The animals of our planet have many reasons for being and they are different from our reasons for being. They are tremendous balances of energy because they are pure, positive energy and are in pure connection to their source. We refer to this as instinct and we are amazed at their ability to migrate, move about and interact. They are connected to nature and are operating from a broader perspective. Their alignment and connectivity are mysterious forces that fall outside the scope of science. Animals can affiliate with others and collectivize their emotional energies so as to increase their chances of survival and reproduction. They are the best teachers on the planet.

He has paddled countless rivers, lakes and bays in his touring kayak and has summited over 20 mountain peaks since his move to California in 2010. He currently resides in Los Angeles, CA and spends ample time in his historic mountain cabin in the San Bernadino National Forest, on Southern California’s tallest mountain. Weber’s art is a combination of paint and his nature photography, mostly captured in the wilderness of America’s National Parks. His unique form of Mixed Media is about the craft and process of layering materials. The colors, textures and patterns are inspired by earthly landscapes, decaying signage from human life, and decaying German and Dutch homesteads near his childhood home in the Midwest. Each piece connects a global audience with a combination of materials and images that look perfect and ruined at the same time, juxtaposed to create rhythm, harmony and coherence.
