From Girl to Woman

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

In my painting, I explore female identity through narratives of the past and present while juxtaposing realism with abstraction to present identity as an abstract concept that changes with context. I use expressive brushstrokes and colors to express my own identity in a timeline manner that consists of the past and present, which sets up narratives surrounding memories, stories, connections, emotions, desires and idealizations of femininity. In my painting, I paint my childhood self with my present self to reminisce and juxtapose the past with the present.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
