I walk—following abrupt, intuitive motivation, not concerned with destination, but enamored with the act of searching. Searching for the worn, wasted and forgotten fragments of a city digesting. I photograph each discovery—whether it be a marbled texture on a rusted post or a worn number on the wall of a shipping container—each one carries with it a rich history, every mark an account of time or suggestion of human tampering. By collecting, deconstructing and abstracting these components of our built environment, the discarded can become necessity, the neglected can command our attention.

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.
