Collected and Bundled #2

While working at an embroidery shop last year, I became fascinated with the pile of colorful thread trimmings that accumulated in the trash can every week. I began collecting these scrap pieces of thread each day, regardless of color or amount, and formed them into bundles that gave the appearance of an independent object representing a workday’s worth of production. This photo series is an effort to recognize the beauty in discarded materials: presenting what is typically seen as garbage in such a way that one can appreciate the color, texture, form and individuality of each bundle.

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.
