Marichyasana B

oil on Mylar, 2014, 42"w x 42"h

By focusing on bodies contorted into the impossible angles of an asana, or yoga posture, and frozen by a camera lens, I intend to capture the muscular tension of the body during the physically demanding act of yoga and the still nature of the meditative mind. To that end I paint figures of classical, heroic proportions and overlay geometric shapes that are derived from the proportions, symbolism of sacred geometry and the architectural design of centrally planned churches during the Renaissance. These shapes mimic the angles present in the corresponding yoga posture and are meant to act as a bridge between the visible and intelligible world.

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.
