He Is Not Him

Vinyl, brass, glass tube, 2015, 2.5"w x 55"h x 2.5”d

My work is evocative of how humans perceive and confront their own fear of mortality. The power of the artificial meets the desire of human existence. My practice is based on generating tension between the comforting and unsettling. Through synthesizing formal qualities of medical tools and jewelry, I blur the boundary between the functional and the decorative. These pieces interact with the body, eliciting visceral emotions of the sexual, humorous and logical.

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.
