Michael Vale works with painting, installation and video. He has also worked as a TV writer, scenery painter, cartoonist, interior designer1 and art administrator. He is currently employed as a senior lecturer (Painting and Film) at Monash University, and has also taught at RMIT and the Hong Kong Art School. He was the inaugural director of Linden Contemporary Art Centre in St Kilda, and also co - renovated the Ghost Train at Luna Park.
Michael believes in the absurdist philosophy that the universe is irrational, and therefore the pursuit of rationality is at odds with the universe. His work is therefore at odds with narrative logic and invites the viewer to visit the zone between inner and outer experience.
