save me (from loving you always)

2011, Oil on canvas, 9.5"w x 13"h

I am a Toronto based visual artist interested in the ability to employ the formal concerns of composition and color to achieve narrative in semi-abstracted form. Images collected from blogs, pornography and fashion magazines are transformed into deeply personal visual narratives through the act of painting. I use intuitive and formal color theory, a vast knowledge of art history and the cumulative elements and principals of good design to create paintings that illustrate a sensation of being.

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.
