Facedown Landscape Series

2012, Oil on canvas, 96"w x 16"h

My work is about color, mark-making, materiality, process and transformation. I start with found images that are relevant to my cultural experience. Through the act of painting, the reference image becomes transmuted in different ways each time. Thus, by transforming an image into an emotional, abstract work, the act of painting becomes my subject. I think of my paintings as representations subverted into abstract landscapes because they develop through mapping shapes and building topographic layers. The outcome is often somewhere between the sublime and the grotesque.

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.
