2013, Paper collage, 11.7"w x 8.3"h

As a citizen of two distinctive cultures I find it hard to define where home is for me. Therefore, houses have become an obsession; they symbolize a stable existence I have never truly felt in society. The house I have focused on is that of my oma and opa. For a long time, this place was the epicenter of stability in my disjointed world. By using an analogue collage methodology combining images from both Canada and Germany, I explore the idea of belonging. With this process I create impossible maps and landscapes, fluid and changing works that reflect my own identity in flux.

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.
