You’re Lying

The subconscious mind is constantly working. From birth, it begins accumulating countless details, creating a collection of visual scenes, faces and smells. I draw from these spaces of familiarity, stripping and altering them until they present themselves as new forms of cognizance. They have formed who I am and can seem unchanging and perhaps even ungovernable. My work aims to examine aspects of the familiar, displaying themes of the body and sexuality, purity and filth, the familial and the domestic, and action and consequence.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
