Painting No. 2

2011, Mixed media on plywood, 96"w x 62"h

In the urban landscape I draw upon the accumulation
of diverse visual material that reflects the culture and evidence of time and also affects of the environment.
I am particularly interested in the arbitrary, yet
seemingly composed moments that can occur in
these juxtapositions. I find comfort in these situations that suggest a collective consciousness and elegant design in a seemingly haphazard world. Rehabilitation, reconstruction and repurposing strike me as responsible viewpoints of the urban organism that is under perpetual scrutiny and evaluation.

There is richness in the city’s surfaces that reveals generations of information cast with an arbitrary patina
of age. In this way, I consider the diversity of my painted and constructed surfaces, indicative of a particular
time, place and intention. I combine a diverse range of materials used in the construction industry, traditional art practices and street art. At times, I become the vandal upon my work with deliberate disregard of the painted surface. Another moment, a discriminating artist, employing formalist technique to unify the piece.
The resolution of these contradictory mentalities culminate in unique visual circumstances that reflect
the urban experience.

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.
