To live in a city is to live with the ever-shifting presence of graffiti and a palimpsest of repairs. The cloud-like painted shapes that carelessly obliterate guerilla acts of graffiti make the space surrounding them more visible and compelling to me. I use these somewhat accidental shapes in my paintings. During the circular act of moving through the city, I am looking for locations where the “fixes” are far from invisible. I work with the space of the city the way abstraction works with the space of art——reshaping, defining perspective, revealing the layers beneath. Through repetition and refinement, the shapes created ultimately land somewhere between the cloud-like and the hard-edged silhouette of a logo.

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.
