Born in Chilliwack (British Columbia). Lives and works in Vancouver (British Columbia).
Michael Love attended both the University College of the Fraser Valley and Emily Carr University of Art + Design and received his MFA in photography from Concordia University in 2009. He was a founder and co-curator of Gallery 295. In addition to his artistic production, Love is also an arts educator at the University College of the Fraser Valley and Emily Carr University.
Love’s work is invested in research of history and conflict. The philosopher and historian Susan Buck-Morss describes the effect of media images leaving viewers in a constant state of shock; she champions synesthetic, an “aesthetic system of sense consciousness” that restores the original meaning of aesthetics, to perceive by feeling, and to see the world as a shared nervous system.
