Acknowledging vulnerability as intrinsic to the healing process, I make and stack vessels coated with unfixed cyanotype, a light-sensitive photographic emulsion. The resulting cairns are contemplations on the relationships between failure, healing and vulnerability within the body. The cairns function as counterpoints to photographic prints of fixed cyanotype paper. In concert, the cairns and photographic fields of blue are portals into a dialogue between the sacred place and the problematic body.

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.
