Ice Circles I

Paint, pencil on photo rag paper, 2018, 40"w x 27.3"h

In past work I have photographed “line drawings” made from skate marks on ice, jet contrails from airshows and, more recently, tracks in the snow made by snowmobiles and animals. From these indexical traces I have been exploring gesture and drawing through various approaches to mark-making in the landscape. I photograph these drawings and marks using a drone, then print the photographs on rag paper. I work into these photographic images with paint and drawing materials, blurring the practices of drawing, photography and painting.

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.
