I follow words, queasiness and the context of personal encounters to discover what it means to be known, to know myself and to know someone else. Using fragments that become books, collages, videos and installations, I prod disjunctures within and between us. These contexts of intimacy and lack serve to expose the raw and the tender where pretense and politeness are stripped away. Using aggressive passivity as a form of resistance, I wonder again and again, “Why does it hurt so baaaadddd/good?”

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.
