I am curious about how the human mind works and how it functions in altered states of consciousness. When I am creating, I am creating a new set of rules for a reality that exists within a different state of consciousness. In my work I find that references to the dream state and the physical world intermix, and as a result I lose the reference of knowing if a dream is merely a fabrication of my mind or something that can be explained by a biological process. In this work I am exploring the aesthetics of bacterial and viral processes.

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.
