Ranchos de Taos Church Forms

2008, Aquatint, 16"w x 12"h

Not filtered by pollution or haze, the light of northern New Mexico is strong and direct. It best defines the monumental geography and architecture with intense shadows and vibrant reflections that create complex shapes and textures.

Returning to a selection of locations multiple times throughout a day, I took interest in both the subtle and dramatic transitions occurring between a diverse range of reflected surfaces, including adobe and native vegetation, their derived shapes, and perceivable textures. I translated these observations into monotype, aquatint and dry-point works. My compositions are built with simplified masses to define unusual forms and spatial relationships in the complex landscape.

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.
