Hanging Over

2012-13, Acrylic and spray paint on wood panel, 30"w x 60"h

This work is a gestural approach to how land is formed. Snowfall, flooding, erosion and sedimentation are all systems that sculpt our land. They produce and inform the next layer, continuing the cycle of the universe. By mimicking the geomorphology of land through the process of paint, I unveil the relationship between macro- and micro-scaled versions of the patterns that make up our world. Hanging Over reflects a study of lichen growing over rocks. This landscape exists in real life, but by altering the proximity, it becomes an abstract representation of its former self. The colors reflect a constructed reality, the artificial and synthetic.

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.
