16 Palm Trees

Drypoint, gouache, 2018, 28"w x 44"h

My work questions what goes on in life and the traces of thoughts made in the process of searching for answers. I explore how the absence of something can simultaneously prove its existence. For example, palm trees are things I can find easily in my hometown. However, they are not present in Michigan. They are something that is very much a part of my daily life in Korea, but I do not see them here. This scenario extends to other things that have a big presence in our lives and the sense of loss we feel when we can’t see or feel them.

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.
