Message from Mike Cable
Mike Cable is a multi award winning and published photographer. His photography offers a new way of looking at the marvelous details we encounter in daily life. Restlessly seeking the unusual in the usual, Cable’s carefully composed shots feature common objects reframed and revisited. Plunging into each object with a freshly born vigor, Cable is concerned with the photograph as a residue of a unique experiential encounter. Abstract marks and scrawls, patterns, systems and maps emerge from familiar artificial and organic matter. Rust, plant life, paint and architectonic abstractions in dynamic hues reveal their own unique symbology and magnify the subtle play of light and shadow illuminating quotidian opticality to the fullest.
Born in 1965 in Plattsburgh, NY, Mike Cable currently lives and works on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. His interest in abstraction harkens back to the formative period he spent growing up in the vast wilderness of the Adirondacks. He has received considerable attention for his land and seascape work as well.
