In my latest works I use fingerprints which I reshape on each surface with irregular shapes. Spontaneously I figure out the choice of material. They incorporate each other to create a different atmosphere. I see the hands as a mass or as volume. Occasionally I get effects that are quite interesting or positions that are suggestive and stimulating. I am always questioning how to replace academic formulas by using my own eyes and directly confronting nature. I like using the organic lines of the fingerprint and hand gestures to create and explore space on a flat surface. Every work I do starts from the observation of motion and usually begins with drawing. When I start to paint, I do not know precisely what I want. I find it along the way.

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.
