For the Kid in Lonely Town

Mixed media (canvas print, acrylic, string), 2017, 30"w x 30"h x 1.5"d

I am an abstract painter obsessed with the elements of kitsch and heartache within my painting practice. Material experimentation includes materials such as wallpaper, tablecloths, electrical tape and floral textiles—considering the kitsch qualities of the perfect home and traditional images that are produced around idealized romantic relationships. Drawing from cliché lyrics of love songs, breakup tunes are key to my studio atmosphere, creating a visual language of mark-making that communicates and reclaims emotional trauma.

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.
