Bound in Tension

Found object, yarn, 2015, 36"w x 120"h x 36”d

Created through a systematic process and Jasper Johns’ 1964 sketchbook entry—“Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it”—I found a broken tree. I compressed the tree in yarn. I hung it upside down. Originally, the tree had a branch that reached out five feet from its trunk before being compressed.

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.
