This diptych was originally conceived as a comparison between two different experiences of the same space. In one you have the spacious environment and in the other you have the congested, both presented from the perspective of someone who is present in those spaces. However, while the two situations are considerably different, one can still manage to feel alone in both. While in one situation you have a crowd of people, they are all avoiding eye contact. With this lack of any human interaction, each person in the crowd may feel just about as alone as they’d feel in the empty space.

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.
