Beauty Lies in the Eyes of Another’s Dream

2013, Airbrush paint, foam, 36"w x 38"h x 1"d

When creating my work, I cast, form, shape, squeegee and pour highly synthetic materials. I am interested in manipulating these materials to the fullest degree, finding the limitations of the materials in my process. I am interested in how foam can behave in several different ways and how it can skew my viewers’ understanding of form and longevity, growth and entropy, as well as the relationship between the natural and the synthetic. I focus on ideas of the simulacra by faking the organic with man-made materials.

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.
