What I Knew Then

Wax, oil and paper on birch panel, 2016, 24"w x 24"h x 1.5"d

In the series Traces (including these pieces), I use photography and painting to explore how ancestry and memory influence individual growth. With oil paint and wax, I copy and preserve elements of family photographs. Creating ambiguous narratives with figures or objects, Traces considers significant moments in development, such as creating an identity separate from one’s parents.

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.
