Twisted Perception

2011, Acrylic on canvas, 36"w x 48"h x 3"d

These paintings are part of a series focusing on the present moment, a visual representation of this specific state of mind. The past and the future are concepts that assist us in understanding the passage of time, but the current moment is our only opportunity for embodied experience. As I paint, I consciously attempt to minimize the clutter of expectation. Acceleration, both centripetal and gravitational, is used to manipulate the paint. Driven by the natural, often unpredictable behaviors of the materials, color, composition, texture, and movement intersect with my intuitive actions. My hope is that these paintings will inspire you to experience your own present moment.

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.
