2012, Coffee and wax on panel, 30"w x 30"h

This encaustic painting was made using purely natural, renewable materials. There are no synthetic chemicals, pigments or oils used, so the painting has no negative health effects. Ground organic coffee was mixed with naturally colored beeswax, which was then poured onto a wax-covered panel. Four types of coffee in fluctuating saturation were used to achieve a variation of colors and textures. The wax was poured in a pattern loosely based on the mapping of brain impulses, drawing a connection to the physical addictions that most people experience with caffeine.

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.
