Through my work I seek queer space in which material no longer highlights the body’s exile but instead forms a new language. Hybrid beings, those that cross-dress, genetically mutate or are simply hermaphroditic and defy perceived binaries are the creatures that occupy the queer. On borrowed time, bodies, speech and material interact without fear of westernized separation. Although not always wearable, it is the implication of wearability without meeting the conventional expectation that pushes the work into queer space. This space may often be taken as fantasy or futuristic, but my view is of the present. My creations are spawned from the mappings and traces of what is based in the current social condition and not founded in a search for utopia.

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.
