Consumerism

Photography, 2019, 11"w x 14"h; 14"w x 11"h (each)

We have become a society in which we’re constantly bombarded with ads about buying the next big thing. Our entire society is built around consumerism, always spending money to get products we may not even need. Sometimes consumerism becomes extreme, and this project is based around the idea of the fine line we walk every day. At what point does consumption become excessive? How many thousands of dollars go into various industries that sell you products left and right? When does buying into the ads we’re bombarded with become too much?

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.
