Einfuhlung (sketch)

2011, Mixed media on paper, 14"w x 11"h

This body of work stems from an investigation into place and memory. My initial examination was from an aerial photograph of Hamburg, Germany, a city of great influence on my life. I was interested in the forms and linear marks that emerged intuitively from my drawings. Working on multiple drawings layered on tracing paper reflects the layered concept of connections of known and unknown histories and familiar personal memories.

    Delicious layers of lovely soft water colours.
    Reminds me a bit of Frankenthaller.

    A subdued expression of rage and anger, grief and longing for the ethereal, balancing that with an elegyof the past.

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.
