Nodes and Ripples

modelling clay and acrylic on canvas, 2013, 36"w x 48"h

My work stems from a background in science and the experimental process. After studying the nature of colour, including wavelength and its relationship to depth perception, I continue to be fascinated by colour’s many properties. Like the colour field movement of the 1950s, I explore the visual impact of colour, stripping away all that is unnecessary. By making art that is essentially an abstraction of abstraction, I am left with an unadorned metaphysical aesthetic. This work is as immediate and as fully revealed as colour allows. It is uncluttered and free from a bombardment of information. It encourages the viewer to pause and reflect; it creates a mood and sets a tone. Subtle variations of colour and texture help maintain the simplicity and the aesthetics of minimalism while creating depth and movement.

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.
