Queen

oil on canvas, 2014, 36"w x 48"h x 2"d

The paintings are silly and an attempt to critique and satirize contemporary Western society by using the history of painting and its relationship to wealth and indulgence. My work is an anachronistic interpretation of the lifestyle of inhabitants, myself included, in the developed world. It fuses modern narratives and historical language in an attempt to talk about material wealth, alienation, technology and meaningless abundance. Ultimately it questions why, despite all our luxuries, we are still unsatisfied, detached and consequently unhappy.

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.
