The objective in my artwork is to stimulate vision through the exploration of colour, creating a particular aesthetic and mood. By rearranging the space within each square, I explore the relationship between perspective and mood through various colour combinations. Place is explored through geometry and optical interplay to generate space and a state of tension. Each square suggests perspective and depth through the juxtaposition of colour. The square gives concise economic control and pictorial vocabulary, allowing the viewer to focus on the colour relationships. While the repetitive use of the square reinforces its dynamic qualities, the effective colour relationship is heightened. The colours are combined to create a complex aesthetic that advances and recedes in a three-dimensional way; positive and negative areas attempt to accentuate different physical spaces.

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.
