Jayne

acrylic on canvas, 2012, 52"w x 36"h

Jayne is a portrait made up of painted pixels and is influenced by the paintings of Chuck Close. Up close, the painting appears to be random coloured circles. From afar, it will reveal the face of a girl I call Jayne. At the time this work was created, I was interested in colour theory, as well as experimenting with how a piece of art looks up close versus from a distance. Since I have mostly worked with portraiture, I wanted to investigate how much a face can be broken down into basic dots of colour and still be recognizable.

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.
