Encaustic, 2017, 24"w x 36"h x 1.5"d

The city at night. It scares some people. But I find delight in the riot of shapes, movement and color. The countryside, by comparison, has little to no geometry; the seaside is all horizontals. The city activates all of our senses. Some look at an Edward Hopper and hear the plaintive call of a freight train. Here is the buzz of neon and the gurgle and hiss of rain. Encaustic is my thing, beeswax and pigment. Such a soft and malleable material might seem at odds with the hard angular subject. But it works for me. If I want, I can make my buildings melt into the sky. Any time. Literally.

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.
