Untitled 35

acrylic on plexiglass, 2015, 46"w x 46"h x 4"d

The light, shining on circles painted on plexiglass, creates shadows on the wall suggesting an extension from the surface into an echoing world beyond the exterior. I use optics, the branch of physics that involves the behavior and properties of light and reflection, to emphasize the complex relationship between conscious and unconscious materiality. I work like a scientist, exploring hidden laws of the visible and invisible process, always present but not always understood. Through this process I want to collapse the notion of time, which closely relates to the materiality of the body, and to shine light on the shadow, a major factor of human experience. In the process, the viewer gets to explore the possibility of in-between space as a new potential for humanity.

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.
