Humanity in Voiceless Story

2012-13, Mixed media, 23"w x 30"h

I am interested in the oral traditions of storytelling; I draw and paint my own life as it relates to the greater story of the human condition—simultaneous tragedy and joy in perseverance. My physical form and mental state, as subject matter, have been offset within my work. Even though I always begin with direct observation, I listen for the voice of the drawing. As the subject and mark-making dictate the process, the work becomes both figurative and abstract. My work is a history of experience, a record including both violence and a subtle sustaining ability to create beauty.

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.
