Owner of Trunk, Ann Perich talks about meeting Temple, “Mike walked into the gallery one day and we started talking. I discovered he was a painter and was in the Bonedaddy’s. He told me that he’d love to paint the front of the gallery.”

He explains, “Although I began to develop my visual language 40+ years ago (Lower-glyphics), it took me a while to develop enough confidence to trust it. Now I do trust the shaman within; and with my visual vocabulary, the rhythm in the performance and the alchemy of paint, I create my view of the cosmos.”

Michael is excited to be sharing this exhibition with his longtime friend and artist/musician Moris Tepper. A heavy hitter in the music business, Tepper has toured and played on numerous albums with talents such as Captain Beefheart and P.J. Harvey.
