Untitled Diptych

Oil and cold wax on canvas, 2016, 62"w x 36"h

I look at the structural elements of painting and reveal the process through the act of painting. The conventional components that construct a painting become formal qualities of my work: raw canvas, primer, palette and paint. I focus on the materiality of these elements and accentuate them through revelation and repetitive accumulation. I leave areas of raw and primed canvas visible, use the surface of the painting to prepare and mix colors, and allow for a buildup of paint through repetitive and reductive line application. In turn, the paintings become dimensional rather than pictorial.

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.
