2012, Archival prints, 17" x 22"

These prints are from a series of works titled Bomshell based on a video work of the same title. They are inspired by bombshells from the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, such as Sophia Loren, Stella Stevens, Elke, Raquel Welch and Sharon Tate. The style is influenced by graffiti, marbleized paper patterns, and the color sensitivity of artist Ed Paschke. The works are created digitally using a software particle painting engine written in C++ and open GL. It feels very similar to spray painting except that I can use a mouse or my fingers on a tablet instead.

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.
