rope and wire, 2015, 60"w x 60"h x 41"d

Objects are composed of many little, insignificant things. We tend to ignore the tiny aspects of larger things and favor the grand product. I believe that in life, inferior objects and materials—such as rope and wire—exist. Combining flaccid, weak rope with strong wire, I show that these materials exist together, the former using the latter to appear structural and unusual. The woven dome creates a space. The ends are messily left to show the material origins and process. The work has two major perspectives: from the outside looking in and from the inside looking out. Surround yourself with the meek materials it took to build this standing form.

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.
