Michael Griesgraber of Las Vegas, Nevada is a contemporary colorist. His acrylic paintings definitely pack a punch that is unforgettable. "Cracked" is one of those wonderful upbeat works with the polychromatic palette with geometric abstraction formation. The near symmetrical, yet asymmetrical arrangement in "No Direction Home" is rich in color and direction and too works very well in a square format. And "Over vs Under", somewhat unsettling in direction, yet intriguing in concept and awesome in color tonality. Yet, with a more controlled orchestration, "Receding Square" is quite nice in terms of the color as well as the sense of the implied three-dimensionality.“
