Eye Candy III (Skittles)

Oil on panel, 2019, 8"w x 11"h

This short body of work consists of painted images of different types of candy, which were taken from photographs that were digitally abstracted. The objective of this series was to create balanced compositions, as well as color relations within each piece, in a way that was pleasing to observe.

These pieces were made as a reaction to the amount of digital images that I consume every day. This creates a desire for interactions with images that have been materialized through the medium of painting—an experience which is, perceptually, far more nourishing and satisfying than that of digital images.

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.
