Folded Perception

2010, Latex paint, acrylic paint, canvas, 20"w x 20"h

I have always been interested in what lies beneath the surface. When one investigates events that go on in the world, sometimes the most benign stories can turn out to be something so much more interesting. As a result, when it comes to my work I try to explore what a painting has to offer beyond the two dimensional surface illusion. I try to use the language of painting in a way that goes beyond just the plane that exists between the edges of the frame. Instead, I create a plane that both extends and retreats in space, allowing the viewer to experience what is on, below and behind the canvas strata. I create paintings that cause a sense of discovery and curiosity in the fluidity of paint in the three-dimensional world.

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.
