2011, Acrylic, paper, museum board, 14"w x 108"h x 5"d (designed vertically)

I am interested in perception and visual phenomena. With this piece I wanted to play with perspective and subtly exaggerate the compression that happens in
our peripheral vision. Meant to touch both the floor and wall, this piece exploits art historical dichotomies of image/object and surface/structure. I hope that the scale of the piece makes the viewers aware of their bodies in space and responsive to the flicker between inside and outside surfaces that occurs when walking around it.

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.
