My intention is to forgo extensive meaning and create work that seems to fall just short. When objects feel more grounded, we tend to spend more time with them or value them more. In a culture where things are based on their monetary value, it’s no wonder that the haphazard and arbitrary are devalued. Using ditty fabrics and candied colors heightens the devalued for some; however, growing up with a grandmother who was raised with a strict German aesthetic inherently made me place a silly amount of value on dum dums and ditties. I will forever see flawed, handmade Fraktur art as holding a greater value than steel or glass. Even though something is made perfectly, it is, after all, just a ditty.

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.
