Gesso on metal, 2016, 48"w x 17"h

Moving to the city from a small town, I fantasize untouched landscapes and question human ideals. These gesso paintings on metal consider the human position within the landscape. Intersections of trees and hydro wires, captured through personal photographs, reflect our disconnection from nature in urban landscapes. Notions of industry, degradation and the juxtaposition of valuing the environment—while acknowledging our impact on it—are conveyed. Metal ore, found in nature and processed by humans, rusts to indicate that it is an active surface reclaiming itself, despite prevailing exploitation.

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.
