The Girl and the Cat

Acrylic on canvas, 2017, 36"w x 48"h

In my painting, I explore female identity through a narrative of the present while juxtaposing realism with abstraction to depict identity as an abstract concept that changes with context. I use expressive brushstrokes and colors to express my own identity in a portrait manner that sets up narratives surrounding memories, stories, connections, emotions, desires and idealizations of femininity. My painting is very personal, expressive and emotional as I paint myself with my cat. The confrontation of the present is a narrative exploration of my own female identity as well as my cat’s.

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.
