Memory of a Walk

Acrylic paint and medium, cradled wood panel, 2016, 44"w x 24"h

I am not a traditional painter, not in my approach to this painting anyway. Rather, I wanted to capture a feeling of lived experience. A traditional painting might try to copy an urban or rural landscape as seen outside a window. I applied thick impasto paint not with brushes but with tools you might buy at the hardware store. I wanted to appeal to the senses: the eyes, the body, the mind—a sensory recollection, a memory of something. Hence the title of this piece, Memory of a Walk.

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.
