Slowing Down

Acrylic paint on wood, 2016, 48”w x 62”h x 3"d

Life is in constant motion. This work was created by slowing down. Days prior to the start of this project I got into an accident that left me unable to walk for months without the use of crutches. I was motivated to make this work by my own struggle to find authenticity and connect with people within my community. I invited my subjects into my studio, to sit with me as I painted their portraits. This process was a way of sharing my reality of stillness. Around the sides of my paintings I included text, words that further document and contextualize the moment.

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.
