Tanizaki Light (I, II, III)

Oil on paper, 2016, 24"w x 36"h (each)

These paintings are an investigation into the writings and theories of Jun’ichurō Tanizaki on the structure of light and shadows and their relation to meditations on spaces. The process of creating these paintings was primarily structural and architectural. A box was built from clear plastic, filled with water, colored sheets of water-resistant paper, and shards of mirrors. A light was shone from multiple angles to create different environments from these elements, which are depicted nonrepresentationally in the paintings.

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.
