Shape II

watercolor on paper, 2015, 38"w x 50" h

This body of work is an exploration of color and automatic gesture. Responding to the work of the early abstract painter Hilma af Klint, I begin each drawing with a 20-minute session of continuous mark making. Following this act, the composition forms through a process of action and reaction. The work then functions as an artifact for discovering unconscious desire, akin to the function of automatic drawing in spirit circles circa the turn of the 20th century.

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.
