Burnt (at water's edge)

2010, Sand and acrylic on linen, 27"w x 76"h

My interest in monuments and monumental structures, has been explored through the imagery of dresses, walls, babies and trees. For me, this personal symbology explores female rites of passage, refers to archetypes of the feminine psyche, and searches for a poetry to describe and question our relationship with the environment. The dialogue between figure and ground, in both the pictorial narrative and in the work’s physical topography, is an important aspect of my practice.

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.
