Balloon Wall No. 2

2011, Rubber latex twist balloons, wood structure, 28"w x 41"h x 8"d

This work exists as a sensory experience– odd but familiar. The slight scent of latex in buried memories of children’s parties and deserted hospital corridors. The erotic stretch and snap of latex against your fingers. A maternal bosom upon which to rest your cheek. A joyful shield of purple that diminishes with time into mournful ashiness. It waits patiently for your touch.

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.
