Snow Trains: Fort Worth

2011, Inkjet prints, 35"w x 12"h

I am often distracted by my environment. I am concerned with the interaction and presence of space and time. I look to the Cubists to formulate and conceptualize my artistic process, which is based on my complete engagement of the subject. When I am taking photographs, I am not focused on the act of combining multiple images, but I open myself to experiencing the moment and capturing my reality in any environment. I am almost always unsatisfied with just one frame being the true depiction of a subject, so it is imperative that I work with multiple images.

My intention is not to use the same image more than once in a single piece. In SnowTrains: Fort Worth, I use two images I took in sequence. The images were taken on the Hulen bridge in January 2011. If there had not been construction blocking one side of the road, I would not have been able to capture this fleeting moment I have experienced many times.

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.
