The Hilltop

Graphite on Dura-Lar, 2016, 25"w x 19"h

My work recognizes groups and individuals forgotten by history. As such, it explores what is revealed and what is concealed, the ephemeral and the impacts of absence and intimacy. The Hilltop is composed of layers of translucent sheets, each filled with drawn line work. Here, the pencil moves cyclically and incessantly forward, like time, yet repeatedly looks back on itself. Porous texture is created and erased, recalling the absence and presence of memory, where some details are prominent and crisp, and others become vague, obscured or lost.

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.
