In the End Gravity Wins Series

2013, Paper, fabric, plastic, and thread on Masonite, 14.5"w x 15"h (each)

I use fabrics to construct 3-D amorphic shapes. The shapes are then mediated by utilizing thread and plastic to tether the form to the plane beneath it. I study how formal qualities such as light, color and the nature of the material affect each composition through the flattening and resurfacing of the form. These constructions serve as experiments in the surrealist technique of automatism. I start sewing, cutting and gluing the pieces, slowly building up each composition organically. In the end the drawings start to function as
diagrams or sketches; the sketches then transition into integral components that resurface in larger sculptural pieces that I construct.

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.
