Sixth Sense

2013, Oil on canvas, 24"w x 18"h x 2"d

A faint light ray, flowing amidst an unlit, dark interior carries the power to illuminate the spaces I create in my works. I am interested in that path of light as it dances around the room, reflecting on corners, forming obscure darks and shadows and evoking an eerie atmosphere. Referencing my childhood nightmares, I construct abandoned sites to narrate a communal anxiety of isolation concerning uninhabited spaces during the nighttime. Using tints of blues and green to evoke a nocturnal setting, the imaginary sites are meant to be livable but contain no depiction of living beings, arousing feelings about the safety of these places.

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.
