2012, Oil on canvas, 108"w x 70"h

As a painter, I am interested in evoking transformations from set points to indeterminacies and how this process can activate the viewing experience. Through the texturing of paint, the play between light and shade, the use of color to illuminate and obscure and the creation of passages that lead from realist definition to near-abstraction, the essay of my work lies within the oblique relationship between evidence and interpretation. In this piece, I was intrigued by the potential of patterning and repetitive form as optical devices to organize pictorial space, define depth, create movement and encourage the viewer to organize and understand the visual field.

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.
