The Idea of Plane is a reinterpretation of the gap between 2D and 3D using material and graphics. I introduced veneer into this project to enrich the material selection and to expand the definition of color in my work. Color is not only pigment and hue; it can also be understood as surface treatment (e.g., marble). From a material aspect, laminate is perceived to be cheap and of poor quality, but people forget the possibility within it. Laminate is a sheet material that can be shaped and cut like paper to create pattern. In this project, I transformed laminate into a different visual language that combines three-dimensional shapes into interesting graphic objects that illustrate optical illusion, yin and yang, mimicry of nature and more.

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.
