Dancing with Dad

coloured pencil, watercolour and pencil, 2013, 36"w x 25"h

Drawing inspiration and technical understanding from the works of master painters, my work tends toward the representation of classical figures centered in contemporary narrative. The current piece on display seeks to explore the disturbing historical representation of women in art, through the use of blatantly misogynistic imagery and themes. In the upcoming exhibition “Violence, Violence, Violencia!” my intention is grounded in the exploration of widely accessible representations of violence in the Internet age.

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.
