Notions: An Experiment in Abstract Forms

Notions: An Experiment in Abstract Forms is the work of Michael Frey, a 16 year resident of Grove City and graduate of Wright State Univ. with a degree in Fine Arts.


For as long as he can remember, Michael has enjoyed putting things together with his hands. Building, making, creating have always been a driving force in his life. “I remember some of the happiest moments of my childhood were spent in the garage, assembling from scraps of wood some form or contraption.” This passion has persisted into adulthood and has led to the work he is producing today.


Michael’s sculptures are free-form organic shapes constructed of repurposed lumber. Each piece evokes a unique experience as the viewer encounters the form and discovers its inherent beauty from all vantages. The sculptures entice the viewer to circle the piece and discover what may be seen from all sides.
