Without Water

ceramic, 2014, 27"w x 8"h x 6"d

During my time at Cranbrook Academy of Art, I struggled with my practice and tried to understand how my work connects to others. The forms in Without Water not only physically resemble natural sea sponges; they were once so. Now they are ceramic and can no longer absorb or function in the way they once did. Without Water represents that struggle with my artistic insecurity, futility of actions and what felt like an inability to absorb information and change into a better artist.

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.
