I’ve been toying with ideas of ineptitude, vulnerability and failure as they relate to sincerity, authenticity and empathy. It is within this realm of human frailty that I have my delight—in diagrammatic tools of defenses and weaknesses, dependencies and crutches. The boundary between object and environment blurs, reflecting my view that our interdependent identities are informed by those around us. You see precarity, balance and support paired with forms that invite empathy through their posture or body language.

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.
