Still Life: 3 Elements

2010, Pigmented ceramic, porcelain, silicone, cedar, 12"w x 5"h x 4"d

From tradition to abstraction, from vessel as object
of use to vessel as stand-in for bodies, emotions and situations, the vessel is a universal symbol, something that every person can understand and cherish. How can one employ these symbols – cups, bowls, vases – and use them to relate to other materials and objects to create worlds of thought that are both new and familiar. These still lifes can help one to contemplate what one sees and does everyday, the relationships we navigate, relationships of all kinds, from personal, to political, to psychological and psychosocial.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
