Views from Nowhere

Acrylic and oil on canvas, 2016, 48”w x 84”h

My work is an investigation of rural sanctuaries and mythological utopias. Using paint as a tool to explore the relationship between reality and abstraction, between memory and intuition, I embed myself in the cathartic, historic practice of escape through landscape. Personal photographs taken while hiking the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales are steeped in romantic sentimentality and act as initial imagery. A vision of utopia is constructed through a projection of personal desires onto the landscape, expressing possibilities beyond existing realities.

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.
