I attempt to express an experience of being embraced by the beauty of the universal spirit through the luminosity of color and light, movement through gesture, richness through the layering of color, and depth through intertwining mark making. The repeated calligraphic marks represent the infinite consciousness. The movement and the energy of the calligraphic marks show the constant state of flux of each thing. In this series, titled ILM ISHK, I have explored the relationship between knowledge and love and how that relationship has helped us evolve as part of the universe.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
