Still Life and Landscape (Diptych)

Acrylic, spray paint and push pins on wood, 2015, 24"w x 36"h x 1.5"d (larger piece); 20"w x 20"h x 1.5"d (smaller piece)

These paintings were a study of improvisational form in the midst of constraints. The constraints of time, color and material. I was interested in finding out what semiotic qualities a series of gestural marks can generate. Slowly the abstraction started to take on representation. The silver of the silver screen, of silver gelatin photographs, of luminous clouds during an austere sunset. The larger piece, a still life. The smaller piece, a landscape. A home. Micro and macro. Relationships. My relationship to the West, looking at it now from afar.

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.
