Depths

Oil on raw canvas, 2017, 60.25"w x 72"h

Dispersed stains mark painted objects in a disappearing space. I permeate surfaces with stains, permanently recording performances past. I challenge the negative implications of stains as a stigma, a blemished reputation or an imperfect blotch. As a second generation Italian immigrant, I am exploring my identity as an American woman with a distant history. I am exploring the subconscious remnants left behind by my personal historical displacement. My works are psychological metaphors for relationships and memories. Remnants of marks are evidence of my failed attempts to wipe away or erase.

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.
