No Sé

Woodcut, 2019, 11"w x 14"h

The letters on this compass represent the cardinal directions, translated into Spanish and reversed to allow for a reading of the phrase “No sé” or the word “nose.” These are not directly related, except that they refer to the self: The first translates to “I do not know,” and the second is a prominent facial feature—part of our image, sometimes our identity. Most important, it is one of the tools that we use to navigate the world. Do you trust your nose?

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.
