This collaboration reimagines the painted works of Elizabeth Ewing through the kaleidoscopic digital lens of Ben Cook. By remapping and recontextualizing the spatial fields in the paintings as source imagery, properties of movement, positive and negative space, velocity, density and monochromatic play are all maximized. This collaboration has yielded these images as a series, but in many ways the dialogue has become more about the formation of a mutual visual language situated evenly between the physical and digital ends of the process itself. The works have begun to carve their own pathway as a result of this mutual individualism and at this point are as much their own visual identity as they are a part of the artists’ continua.

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.
