Fractures I

Bronze sculpture on walnut wood rest, 2016, 4.75"w x 4"h x 4.75"d

I am intrigued by impermanence: the immediacy of the moment and its counterpoint, time spent, life lived. I was drawn to the idea of using metal to produce a hard, durable and more permanent object to depict what is impermanent, transient and fragile. This piece depicts preciousness as well as damage caused by time, aging and disease. The weight of bronze belies the visual fragility of a fractured eggshell and speaks to the passage of time.

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.
