This body of work is about my interest in the impracticalities of creative thought. The works began with capturing the physics found in cartoons, then evolved and became a take on surrealist humor. Through these pieces, viewers question the logistics of functionality. By nature, people are visual beings. We rely on our eyes and logic to make sense of the world we live in. With my works, I break the connection to logic and force the viewer to see a world in which the laws of physics do not apply, and creatures seem to morph from everyday objects.

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.
