I became a U.S. citizen during my last semester of college, and I am still trying to process the strangeness of the U.S. naturalization process. Despite becoming a “dual citizen” and retaining my Romanian passport, the oath includes renouncing allegiances to all other entities. Through a range of processes and materials, I preserve and broadcast links to the culture of my upbringing and birthplace. In this series, I incorporate a developing index of symbols, color palettes formed from the interiors and exteriors of my summers spent in Romania, and traditional embroidery patterns.

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.
