Margarita #1

2011, Mixed media (collage and digital print), Approx. 59"w x 39.5"h

The figure in this series is an adaption of 16th century French queen, Marguerite de Valois, a character from the book The Master and Margarita written by Mikhail Bulgakov. Choosing this figure shows how an object or character changes through different perspectives and interpretations over time. In our contemporary world, images lose their original meaning as the content attached to them constantly fluctuates. In my work this tendency is portrayed by combining different elements and images from various sources, then visualizing them through various methods of production.

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.
