Symbiotic?

Acrylic on canvas, 2016, 70"w x 35"h x 1.75"d

This painting addresses the impacts of industry on the environment. The naturalistic environment gets absorbed into the mechanized world and vice versa, creating a synthesized whole in which humanity becomes somewhat alien. The painting was created in layers, using a rapid, gestural drip technique followed by traditional painting and abstractions—a variety of elements brought together in a cohesive whole, much like the subject matter. The question being, do these juxtaposed unlikely elements create harmony or chaos?

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.
