“What one must paint is the image of resemblance—if thought is to become visible in the world” — Rene Magritte


The Proxies investigates postmodern notions of identity by exploring questions of individuality and the construction of the self. I consider how meaning is generated by employing semiotics and coding the images through the juxtaposition of culturally loaded iconography.

    Hi Kayla,

    I saw your art online and I absolutely love what you have done. So innovative and colourful. Do you have art for sale or in any galleries?

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.
