I am interested in exploring the benefits of understanding life’s contextual roots. Remembering the roots of something brings clarity to the present and answers to convoluted events and thinking. I chose the rhino as a symbol of the fractured human tolerance of today. When provoked, a rhino is an aggressive animal, but more often than not, it is a docile and steady creature. Humans, when provoked, can become aggressive, driven to conflict and war, but a basic need still stands just the same across the world—to be understood. This painting is a reflection of that need.

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.
