Where the Wilde Things Are

Screenprint, 2018, 30"w x 22"h

Because of my connection to South Africa, I focus on abstracting African animals by representing them in a new way—using bright colors and giving them a playfulness that is not always seen or known. With a father from South Africa, I am fortunate enough to have experienced many different countries in Africa and parts of the world that many can only dream of. Opposed to realistic representations, I show animals in a more approachable manner through abstraction with vibrant colors. I show the animals in ways that are not always recognizable at first, but upon closer inspection they become clear.

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.
