The head and face are sources for communication and experimentation. They are where we recognize one another, use language, express emotion and think. They change over time and can be gateways into abstract ideas of what a person, either real or imagined, can look like. I am using a power washer to draw these images into a screen and then print them using screenprinting inks. I also trace images over existing images with a Sharpie marker to create multiple layers. The images situate themselves in a conversation with me (as self-portraiture) and with the audience in an open-ended narrative.

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.
