Smoky Mountain

Acrylic on wood, 2013-2015, 48”w x 48”h x 0.2”d

I use the trapezoid, an abstracted shape of a mountain, to represent memories of long-lasting road trips through the deserts and forests of Iran. In the Virus series, I paint the trapezoid as an entity becoming invaded by an undying viral force and reaching immunity through this process. Smoky Mountain is about the process of reaching immunity.

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.
