Phantasmagoria

Oil paint on canvas, 2016, 60"w x 72"h x 2"d

My work investigates the interconnected and cyclical nature of the self and the natural world. In my paintings I examine the systems and structures, upon which all life is built, to find the common denominator. I am interested in rerouting the systems to build new structures and interested in how that yields a new form of life-being. The use of nuanced color relationships creates a reverberation and vibration in an effort to breathe life into these condensed images that straddle both imagination and material reality.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
