Knot II

watercolor and hair on paper, 2014, 8"w x 6"h

This piece uses the rich metaphor of hair. It is a nonliving material produced by the living body. It contains the sequence of DNA belonging solely to the being it came from. It tangles and becomes a chore, and yet we are loath to remove it completely from our heads. It is beautiful in some contexts and disgusting in others. And the tangles it creates are like diagrams of the ways humans interact with one another. In this small drawing, I begin to address these concepts.

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.
