The creative practice of erecting hollow forms, by hand-building with formless material, is connected to the idea of power over matter, will and control, which also carries sexualized productive aspects. I use the physical properties of my sculptures to lure the viewer into approaching them. The context in which the objects I create are placed endorses meaning over use by talking about sexual identity, gender and sexuality. The context is the gallery; it denies the touching and amplifies inaccessibility.

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.
