My work asks viewers to rethink the ways we experience objects and space around us. If our perception of everything we experience relies on memory and learned expectations, why is imagination not as real as perception? We have a difficult time overcoming how we think the world looks, allowing things to be just what we expect them to be. To try to infuse some curiosity for the world, I would like the relationship between reality and expectation to be reexamined. The object is effectively real and might reference other existing objects or mimic their functions, but it doesn’t posses the same logic real objects adhere to. My hope is that this visual, experiential disruption of the expected will cause reconsideration of learned systems of seeing.

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.
