Remains is a collection of paper-mâché sculptures that represents the impact our consumerist society has on the environment. Through an exploration of processes and materials, paper is treated and manipulated to appear like wood again. These pieces portray different types of trees and celebrate their unique characteristics. The intention of this work is to maintain an awareness of the negative effect overconsumption has on natural resources and to inspire a creative reuse of mass-produced items.

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.
