Glimpse of Another World

Photographs on sheer fabric, 2018, 23"w x 17"h

Photographs echo our attachment to nostalgia and become an important part of our memories. My artwork focuses on capturing the elusive, unclear qualities of memory by printing my soft-focus photographs on sheer fabric. The ethereal, distorted images resemble paintings, and by arranging the photos in layers, I combine different memories together. Transitory memories become real, preserved in sheer fabric. These layered, pastel-style images reference the countless small details in life and moments that are unnoticed or lost.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
