Nothing to Bloom

2012, Acrylic on paper and canvas, 30"w x 30"h

My paintings come into existence recalling moments of altered memories and stories made up in my mind. They evolve to accompany me through time and become evidence of now. On a small part of the body of a tree, I lay pieces of golden paper. I write from the past and draw ornaments of nonsense. Every story related to a memory is layered on top of another, and each is shaped differently—a bold silhouette, manipulated handwriting, overlapped drawings of related patterns and shapes. If I’m a bowl to hold time for as much as my paintings are able, how big is time to hold me and my thoughts? Time imprisons me. If it passes, I only can make a memory out of it. If it hasn’t come yet, I only can imagine it.

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.
