Concrete and Gold

2013, Concrete, gold leaf, and charcoal, 13"w x 7.5"h x 0.75"d

I am exploring and questioning our relation to beauty and desire by combining the fragility of gold leaf with the utilitarian quality of concrete. The fluttering of the leaf activated by the breath of the viewer further relates to the body and its relationship to this object.

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.
