The Primary Means

acrylic, Conté and oil pastel on canvas, 2015, 48"w x 36"h x 2"d

My work examines architecture, urban life and the experience of the built environment in contrast to the natural landscape. I use photos taken during my daily travels through the city and combine them with my observations and memories to create an abstract impression of a space. These spaces are both invented and referenced from reality, which makes them ambiguous yet familiar. Engaging color combinations metaphorically point to the vibrancy of urban life and the feeling of being connected to a broader urban context. I attempt to explore human-manipulated space and how it shapes our perceptions of our surroundings and ourselves.

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.
