Double or Nothing

2009, Oil on canvas, 48"w x 48"h

The painting Double or Nothing was inspired by a very small found photograph of a boy throwing a yo-yo. In 2009-10, I used found photographs as reference material for painting and altered the images with double-effects, ghost-figures, and strange color to evoke nostalgia and the impermanence of memory. My work from 2010-11 carries over these interests but instead of found images to reference, I have staged scenarios with friends and loved ones that appear in my work. View more work at

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.
