Untitled Asian Male

Oil paint, plexiglass, 2017, 40"w x 38"h x 2"d

My work explores my identity as an Asian male and how elements of my life have shaped and affected it. The thick paint application refers to the building of identity as well as the objectivity of the male forms I depict. The addition of light and shadow to my work portrays secondary personas we create when in different situations, personas that can often weigh on us as we hide our true selves from those around us.

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.
