Bro. Fox and Bro. Rabbit

Ink on watercolor paper puppets, 2015, 4"w x 14"h (each)

The stories of Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox have been collected and retold for generations. These puppets take the characters off the pages of children’s books to give them a new setting in a contemporary conversation. I am working to present the parallels between old folktales and real events that keep happening over and over again. The morals that children’s stories sought to teach remain relevant today, especially when our culture has not learned the lessons.

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.
