Village 2018

Acrylic, oil, burlap, twine and cardboard on wood panel, 2018, 48"w x 60"h x 1.5"d

This piece was inspired by remote fishing villages located along the riverbanks of the Amazon rainforest. The villagers construct homes by using multicolored repurposed and/or salvaged materials. Most of the homes are supported on wooden piles to accommodate the fluctuating water levels between the rainy season and times of drought. The creativity and ingenuity used by the villagers to construct their waterfront habitats has provided my practice with a visual library of information that transformed itself into this work.

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.
