Purification Contamination

2012, Inkjet pigment print on paper with oil paint, 25"w x 35"h

The image of a place, an inhabited landscape, a snapshot in time … this is my starting point. Using the iconic everyday images found in family photo albums, I transform the ordinary to be at once familiar and strange. Through a repeated process of scanning, enlarging and painting, I obscure the figures, architecture and traces of human presence. In each image, landscape reclaims visual space——figures merge with the land or take on its characteristics. The gestural brush strokes and materiality of the paint act as metaphors for the textures, colors and shapes of the changing landscape.

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.
