The painting presents itself in physical space as something to be dealt with directly instead of remotely—it demands engagement. The distinctions between commodity, machine, object and body have become confused; the work calls for the viewer to reexamine her relationship to her surroundings. By reforming disparate material elements into paintings that seem to have their own pulse, the viewer comes to terms with the power of material and its affect on the human psyche.

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.
