2012, Plugged, PVC pipes, walnut, 24"w x 15"h x 32"d

This is made from industrial PVC water mains stripped of their previous function and assigned new ones. Heated, bent, and manipulated by hand, the plastic is humanized through distortion from its highly-machined geometry. A single, simple gesture: stretching or folding is all that is afforded by the immediacy of the process and the limits of one-man production. This shifts our understanding of a material and the potential of common objects. The ordinary can be activated—bleeding mystery into the everyday.

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.
