These drawings evoke human characteristics, personalities and emotion without relying on figurative representations of the body. Through sagging forms, folds of skin and swells of flesh, they speak to the absurd physicality of human experience. Fragments of flesh, hair and textile are paired with cartoonish spills and floating webs—macabre images that are as strange as they are amusing. Taken as a whole, these drawings are abstract compositions rendered in bright colors and layers of pattern, yet they reveal a fascination with the psychological grit of sex and domestic life.

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.
