At the Edge of the Universe

Photography, 2017, 20"w x 30"h

My work at Cranbrook Academy of Art explores personal relationships to trauma and loss through constructed juxtaposition. I take the subjects or objects that I photograph and place them in uncanny environments. Through these constructed realities I seek to leave the viewer disoriented but still with a sense of familiarity. Lately, I have been drawn to literature that has a queer narrative. I use these narratives to look inward and reflect on my relationship with family, lovers and mortality and the universe.

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.
