My work combines drawing and painting processes to compose paintings based on photographic references investigating memory, place, presence and the politics of seeing. Translating my cellphone shots into paintings on translucent and distressed surfaces, I aim to crystallize layered sensations of navigating the city and its transitory spaces, which complicate perceptions of time, place and identity in both physical and psychological ways.

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.
