Bent Tesseract

Steel, wool, 2016, 24"w x 14"h x 10"d

By a small box of candle light, we peer into Plato’s cave. We have all been here swaying within bricked walls. Through time the candle grows through ground into a five-dimensional translucent world. Point and line to hyperplane. To touch tesseract and warm sunlit wind. We turn it inside out, folding air like paper into enamel meltwater, poured pools of fearless sweet rainbow wine into aquarium walls. Tapping glass awakens childlike xylophones. Yellow is the color of middle C. Leaving behind cynical bricks in caves. Black is the color of closure, of caves when candles retire.

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.
