Michael's art works can be placed into two broad categories; Projects and Process.
Projects are Michael's major artworks that speak on specific themes such as his military experience, trauma and recovery, and PTSD. Some examples include Relics of Decay, Six Ways to Kill and the Monolith Project. These are the artworks that speak to Michael's artistic vision and reflect his contribution to Australian art.
Processworks are a broad range of artworks Michael creates to explore and hone techniques, mediums, materials and construction methods that underpin the creation of his Projects. Topics and mediums vary greatly and reflect Michael's interest in the skills that underpin art creation.
