Chair Arrangement II

2011, Copper plate etchings with drypoint on Kitakata paper, 6"w x 8"h (each)

The chairs in these etchings construct spaces (in my current studio) out of compositional interest instead of functional arrangement. They have become drawing subjects to articulate a relatively standard matrix of proportions between chair height, depth, and back angle — while decorative details and structural variance provide comparison interest. Some of the chairs I designed and built; others were bought or found and have become fixtures in my home and studio life.

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.
