I am focusing on a line that, in my mind, traverses through realms of psychology and formal representation. In a nonlinear process that I intend to continue to pursue, I wish to investigate these forms that arise in my work that suggest a universal desire to transcend our current existence—often so tightly defined by feelings of alienation and longing.

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.
