Wild Flowers I Used To Know

2012, Mixed media, 42"w x 72"h

As a first generation American, I was born and raised in South Florida, a melting pot of culture. My father escaped from Communist Poland and arrived in Miami in the mid-1970s. With $18 in his pocket, he started a business making sewing machine attachments within the Miami garment industry. With the rise of outsourcing, I have witnessed a man achieve the American Dream and see it dissipate. My work investigates the disillusionment of this utopian construct through associations to memory, labor, loss, value, nostalgia and myth.

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.
