Mixed media on raw canvas, 2016, 30"w x 40"h

Living in an era of rapid development, the notion of nature tends to be forgotten. My work depicts an oneiric and allegorical landscape employing abstract figures. The extraordinary contrast between the opaque and translucent forms alludes to my personal struggle regarding the imbalance between urbanization and nature. The floating organic shapes offer a dynamic scene. The fluid backgrounds evoke the vulnerability of the ephemeral. Referencing current cultural and social topics, I wish to elicit a sense of retrospection through these mystic visuals.

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.
