Acme: Iron Birdseed

mixed media, 2014, variable dimensions

My works are appropriations of classic cartoon inventions and contraptions. I was interested in the simplistic function of these machines whose purpose in most cases was to catch the protagonist but invariably backfired in the face of the “deemed” bad guy. In real life there is no logical way these machines can function properly, but their absurdity has a magnetic presence. By recreating them in three dimensions, I contradict cartoon logic. My mixing of worlds calls into question what is possible and how the impossible may function in our everyday lives.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
