Oil and graphite on Mylar, 2017, 42"w x 64.5"h
There is a Polaroid photo of me, as a child, with my mother. On the back of the photo are the words “Mummy and me.” I have no memory of writing that nor of the photo being taken, yet the more I look at it, the more I remember other details from that time. Based on that photo, this painting is an exploration of memory, of loss and the attempt to relive moments from our past. I consciously use the film devices of cropping and repetition while also restricting the paint application to the negative space. The figures are absent but we still see their faded outlines.

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.
