acrylic, latex and spray-paint on wood panel, 2014, 36"w x 48"h x 1.5"d

Landscapes made of sky, grass, concrete and pavement created with a printmaking sensibility emerge as abstract landscapes illustrating the patterns, colours and textures of Toronto. My paintings are created through a process of construction and destruction. Every stroke and pour validates the last one, a gesture of approval and deprecation. These automatic paintings are created through layers of poured paint and gestures. Inspired by a love for natural textures, I attempt to push the alchemy and structure of paint to mimic patters and reactions that are seen in nature.

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.
