The Gyre – Michael Hermesh

The Gyre by Michael Hermesh

Acrylic on Board; 37.5 inches by 47.5 inches
There Are No Secrets,


One of the major strengths in Michael’s art is his ability to impart narrative in a way that completely connects with every viewer. The Gyre by Michael Hermesh is one of his strongest examples of this talent because there are so many narratives going on within the entire painting. As a whole, the work is cohesive and stunning with its impact. Then the viewer is completely pulled into the painting and continually discovering new and hidden gems of narrative in a way that the painting becomes mesmerizing. There are a thousand stories here just waiting to be discovered and a thousand unanswered questions. It’s up to the viewer to discover the essence of what this work means to them, and for each person, it will be entirely different.

The artist’s peers regard the Gyre by Michael Hermesh as one of his most influential works to date. A close friend suggested that this poem was a reliable companion to the piece.



“TURNING and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.”

from “The Second Coming” by William Butler Yeats
