Eyjafjallajökull

Acrylic, mixed polymer on birch panel, carved, 2017, 72"w x 40"h

Vibrant and sculptural, my current paintings reflect a culmination and synthesis of a lifelong practice of painting, psychoanalysis and exposure to the colors, traditions and handicrafts of Västerbotten, Sweden, and Telemark, Norway. Semi-abstract, they are hand-carved into thick layers of paint that reference a Scandinavian palette and a tradition of carving. The painting process is partially directed by free association and references the unconscious mind through the layering of the paint and the semi-abstract dream-like forms. The pieces I create often encapsulate an experience or idea.

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.
