Oil, silver leaf on canvas, 2016, 36"w x 54"h x 1.5"d

Cosmopolitan is a digitally altered view of Dundas Square, treading between colorful abstraction and recognizable form. As an artist, I was drawn to this new way of visualizing a Toronto night scene that was initially an editing mistake in Photoshop. Precious silver, gilded to the canvas, enhances the movement of light in the piece, which corresponds to the sensory input of a city. When combined with the modified urban imagery, this literal silver lining adds intrinsic value to the notion of finding new ways of seeing the world (if even just by accident).

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.
