Acrylic on plywood, 2018, 18"w x 20.5"h x 1"d

Close engagement with the material qualities inherent to each form and medium has served as the foundation for my artistic practice. I have realized that more of my practice has to do with the different ways I can manipulate my material in order to express different past experiences or movements within the queer community. I have found that I can explore identity through a complex, industrially produced material layered with “content” from its natural, organic source. Each piece of plywood is not completely changed in the manufacturing process but rather edited. No two panels are truly alike.

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.
