2013, Oil on canvas, 56"w x 36"h

This piece considers the monumental abstract compositions made by Barnett Newman in the mid-20th century. It deals primarily with surface color and areas of abstraction. Like Newman, who created a deliberate center in some compositions that he called the zip, the composition of my painting is compressed in a central area in which brushstrokes are visibly layered and two other large areas meet. The surface is physically textured, providing an interesting tension with the flat planes of color.

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.
