Self-portrait, Laughing, after Rembrandt

oil on panel, 2014, 9"w x 12"h

I have always found people to be the most interesting aspect of life. Every single person has his or her own unique story and personality. Using art I explore the emotional narratives found in various stories from people I meet. This particular self-portrait is an examination of a typically difficult emotion to capture, laughter. Rembrandt has always been my biggest influence, and through studying him I have created my updated response to his work. Wearing today’s luxury garments, I have shown part of my ever-changing persona in the form of a laugh and a different view of the particular character I play.

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.
