Michael Partington - Artist

Automata

Michael Partington has been working as a master clockmaker and artist since 1974, but his private projects tend to feature the political, uncanny and sometimes the dark and sad aspects of human nature. He has devoted a lifetime to aquire the skills of designer, horologist, sculptor, mechanic, automatist, animator, modelmaker, painter and conceptualist.

His automaton inspirations are cross-pollinated in the subject matter and design approach. Dada-surrealism, mechanical engineering, architecture, steampunk, erotica, exotica, classical renaissance, horology, anthropology, artificial life/androides and anatomy to name just a few. It is not uncommon to see his projects packaged with a strong dose of theatrics and old world magic he learned from his magician father.
