Perception of the darkness has an oppressive presence in which blackness is filled with unrecognizable shapes and forms interpreted into a barrage of black wild strokes. Through the deconstruction of the darkness, perception is altered and a true understanding can be ascertained. My artwork involves the investigation and deconstruction of darkness and forms; it establishes a translation of images through the layering of pigments, strokes and textures that the mind omits when submerged into darkness. Forms converge and light will inadvertently emerge, noting not all is black.

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.
