2012, Leather and steel, 30"w x 42"h

“When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.”
— George Bernard Shaw

From the series Ferocity, this work explores human nature, violence, and our unwillingness to accept ourselves as animals. Using steel and leather to produce works which are both crude and refined, I investigate the conflicts between brutality, suffering, and desire. Exploring themes which both menace and seduce, I question the ethics of using natural materials and the treatment of animals in society today.

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.
