Knot I

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

This piece uses the rich metaphor of trees. Their roots entrench them and draw life from the earth, as people draw their livelihoods from the natural world. They entangle with one another invisibly under the ground, as people’s lives tangle with one another. Their trunks and branches are very body-like, paralleling human forms. In this small drawing, I begin to address these parallels.

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.
