"Mish's highly autobiographical paintings place the painter in the dual position of being both subject and voyeur.

These primal, deceptive childlike images take us on a deeply personal exploration of a psyche once locked behind barred and bolted doors, but now ajar, allowing light of the liberator.

Using the power of bold colors layered in a patchwork of abstract shapes, Mish creates a checkerboard of distressed textured surfaces evoked chapters of ordeal, memories, fears, and emotions once pushed into dark corners now exposed and raw

To study Mish's art is to feel the inquietude in the Temple.  To be plunged into the contemplation of a tortured heart crying out in denial of the soul that tortured it.

But now flowers spring from fears burned and buried.

The Flowers he holds seem to represent a joy and generosity long lost and found anew.

Mish's intimate and personal work hints at glorifying the sorrowful things that life has a continual desire to forget.

There is a  sweetness and a melancholy pervading the work that passes over us like a shadow before bathing us in warm sunlight."
