Mike Bayne

Posted by Scott

Mike Bayne creates striking realist paintings that celebrate the mundane. Can’t help but be reminded of William Eggelston’s work, which while photographic, maintains a sort of painterly style.

Love the imagery, he’s captured middle America perfectly on canvas. If you hadn’t mentioned these were paintings, I would have had no idea.

I’m not really sure what to think. A bunch of them are like 5×5 or 6×6 inches, thats really hard to believe.

The “PG Sports” piece is the only one I could tell was a painting no matter how hard I look at the others.

unless I am mistaken, that’s Canada, not middle america. Almost a depressing quality in the air. amazing. How does that dude paint so small and jam all that detail in there. Genius!

These have an eerie quietness to them..

Just looking at the rest of his portfolio, and I can’t believe those aren’t photographs. How is that possible…?

I love these pictures! The images themselves are beautiful – and the fact they are paintings is just amazing! Reminds me VERY much of George Shaw and Frank Breuer.
