2011, Tissue paper and steel, 12"w x 12"h x 6"d

With this work I am interested in the material juxtaposition of tissue paper and steel. In juxtaposing these materials, the relationship between structure and skin emerge. The focus is repetition in an action, process, or state of decay for the purpose of understanding the object. The structure and elegance of the objects are bound to the consequences of corrosion. The deterioration occurring within the cocoon-like tissue paper casings leads to the breakdown of the relationship between structure and skin. The structure disintegrates and the skin itself takes its place as both support and covering.

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.
