Michael Chorney

Traditionally, kangaroos have been represented symbolically, Michael’s intent is to portray these animals as individuals, reflecting their unique personalities. He chooses to depict them in an intimately analytical yet expressive form.

Michael and his wife Wink, live on a country property on the banks of the River Murray at Mannum, rescuing injured and orphaned animals. As a result they have a considerable number of native animals, including kangaroos, many of these were hand raised, so they are extremely quiet and accept Michael and Wink as family. It makes them perfect subjects of observation for an artist.
