The photographs submitted are landscapes I have manipulated. I work into the surface of the Polaroid image, tearing, smearing and scratching the emulsion, leaving shapes that become integrated into the layout. We become aware of the different surfaces—a photograph that is a flat representation of space and the surface of the photograph as a flat object. The realm of the landscape is expanded, and volume is added by collapsing the distance between these two planes. These images dwell in multiple spaces. The physical marks and the captured time of photographic representation combine to build an image of physical spectacle and mystery that is neither completely in nor of one space.

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.
