My recent work examines the horizon line as a visual phenomenon that acts as an external referent. Spatial experience is unavoidably temporary because our assimilation of it changes with every moment and movement. Simultaneously, it is something from which we seek constant feedback: We determine our physical and, often, mental location in reference to it. My work explores how the horizon line functions as a perceptual construction of space that is emblematic of this dichotomy; it serves as a visual limit or reference and yet is in a state of perpetual variability in relation to the viewer.

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.
