The fear of nuclear war and consensus of urgency to prevent environmental degradation have been reoccurring headlines within our generation. My paintings focus on the event that humanity has failed to defuse these posed dangers. Research on radiated landscapes of foliage, future inventions, green architecture and post-apocalyptic narratives—especially the Fallout video game series—have aided me in formulating convincing premonitions. Post-apocalyptic narratives often envision a separation of classes. I depict the privileged alienating themselves from the hardships of the majority to illustrate economic inequality within our society.

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.
