Homage to God

Acrylic on wood panel, 2007, 48"w x 48"h

In this painting we have an image of birth and emergent life. The entire square panel is filled with a circular composition of color and light, showing us an embryonic bird of prey. In the center of the image, the natural grain of the wood panel on which the bird is painted swirls and collects together—the grain structure of the wood becomes the bird’s ligaments, musculature and feathers. The growth of the bird out of the wood is an homage to natural processes.

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.
