Fabric, 2018, 5"w x 27"h x 1"d

Jewelry is not merely an adornment outside the body. I see jewelry as the extension of the body and the orifice through which the world enters the body. Since fabric suggests the most wearability and renders the most intimacy with the body, I employ fabric with certain tactility that entertains either my obsession or repulsion embedded in my childhood memory while jewelry-making. I also value the energy and sincerity of the repetitive process of making—stitching, knotting, looping—through which I reflect on the passage of time and the dreary daily routine that chains the urban dwellers.

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.
