My work explores the zones of our urban spaces that exist as thresholds between cultivated and wild, control and entropy, what was before and what will come after, known and unknown. I am interested in presenting “nature” outside conventional patterns, thereby opening a space for questioning how social reality refers to the natural world in the age of the Anthropocene. Materially, I blur the lines between synthetic and natural, flat and three-dimensional, moving toward an alchemy that intertwines man and nature and questions how we co-evolve.

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.
