Touch & Go

2011, Wallpaper, acrylic on wooden panel, 60"w x 48"h

Wallpaper is created based on a variety of mathematical formulas that result in patterns and designs. I similarly use structural strategies and various paints to disassemble and reassemble wallpaper so that a compositionof order may appear once more.

The organic and geometric lines, colors, and shapes within wallpaper are my inspiration when configuring the compositions in my work. When lines are subtly shifted, a glimpse of the original design presents itself alongside an afterimage.

Misaligned strips of wallpaper interact together creating an image in which the underlying design is barely visible, leaving the viewer to reorganize and reconstruct the original design.

    ‘Misaligned strips of wallpaper interact together creating an image in which the underlying design is barely visible, leaving the viewer to reorganize and reconstruct the original design.’There lies the answer to new ideas and designs I expect …only the designer would stick to the original concept as the viewer will always add their own perspective drawn from their own experience of life.

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.
