Painting No. 1

2011, Mixed media on plywood, cinderblocks, 96"w x 99.5"h x 10"d

My structure, material, and process are derived from uncanny visual circumstances in the architecture of our constructed environs. There is a futility in our attempts to construct our environments for efficiency while the same systems are doomed to corrode and fail. This painting is the result of marks made while repeatedly flipping two 8′ x 4′ plywood boards. This was inspired by the displacement and replacement of construction fencing during the development of a site. The inevitable wear and tear of these structures represent the struggles between the civilized world and that which we cannot control.

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.
