Destructive Development

500.00

By Ian Matchett. Oil on Canvas. "This piece is my reflection upon the Dan Gilbert saviourist phenomena. Gilbert’s company, built upon extracting value from the sale of homes, has become a huge force within Detroit. He seeks to remake the city in a profitable attractive package, erasing a the long history and current residents who have come before. With this work, I try to challenge this erasure, and the positive narratives of “development” that have surrounded his work."
