I am interested in culture, shape and repetition. The silver spoon is a symbol of Korean cuisine culture, and I used the object that shows the meaning of “togetherness.” Through repetition, I want to express the culture of giving, receiving and sharing inherent within big families that come together during mealtime. I want to add more excitement to the subject of culture, which can be boring and dull, and I chose a more interesting expression by using a simple, comfortable and smooth object and including a minimalistic style.

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.
