My work employs a reactive process of erasure, reworking and material overlay used to delineate geometric forms I have developed from redrawing and editing elements of found technical and scientific images. Active surfaces and perceived space are created through accrued layering, selected removal of specific areas or with the addition of textures. I work toward developing a seductively uncomfortable optical experience, emphasizing differences where figure and ground are equally present. In this process, a simple geometric image reveals a multitude of choices and directions to investigate.

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.
