Rituals and Mediation between the Body and Form

Hemp rope, 2017, 20"w x 24"h x 3"d

I worked through a series of material explorations as a method of investigating ways to mediate between the body and forms. The explorations utilized making as a ritual, and the forms developed through my cultural lens. I wanted to capture the gestures of the body and have them held and cradled by the forms as a way of mediation. The gestures and postures that are set in place were only because of the built forms that rested on the body. They raised the question of how much further the form could push the body to hold certain postures.

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.
