Michael McDowell envelopes light in his work with an innocence of his talent...that light is immediate and expresses both joy and a warmth...it invites a seductiveness and a belonging in the painting...Michael McDowell evokes in the beholder, a smoldering, suggestion...he is a master of revealing moments in life and he conveys with brush, the whole of his inner buoyancy...Michael is gifted and one need only see one painting to know he reveals all our forgotten joys and memories...Michael is a story teller...providing one moment in which to experience beauty, joy, happiness, gaiety...the light of our beautiful east end.
