Michael Beitz received his MFA from the University at Buffalo in 2009. Originally from New York State, Beitz spent a number of years working as a furniture maker for artists and designers while continuing his studio practice. Beitz creates large-scale installations and sculpture inspired by the social, personal, and material functions of furniture.

I am interested in parallels between emotional states and the designed objects and environments we live with and within. I explore this through drawing and sculpture, using a variety of materials and processes. Having dual histories as an artist and furniture maker has resulted in the use of furniture as a subject to address intricacies of social interaction, personal relationships, and self-investigation.
