Past Personified

digital video, 2013, 44"w x 55"h

Past Personified is about my state of mind. It is a place where all my conflicts come together in that moment. Having lived three different lives—in India, Dubai and the U.S.—I realized I had developed multiple personalities that helped me fit into each culture while still keeping my own values intact. The bells are symbolic of my culture and past and keep me bound, become a rhythm and constantly remind me who I really am. Traditions can be very impractical and unreasonable, but living in today means being practical and reasonable. The snow represents this frozen moment that I want to embrace rather than struggle against.

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.
