2012, Tin, Sizes vary

I shy from materials and techniques that comfort me. Baseless, unable to rely on the indoctrinated structures of a familiar process, I listen to the flowing insubstantial. I spread it fully, layer it, hold it to the light, and then: I cut it. Before my hands knew metal I learned to braid with sun filtering through the window and the ravens taunting my clumsy hands. They have changed. Now well-trained and boring easily, they best respond to punishment. I silenced them and now clear rooms so they might speak. What will come out—a whisper or a rattle? Hunched over in anticipation, I realize: I was born from the plasticity of metal. In silence I work out simple tasks dutifully, listening. The products coalesce upon my bench; I must bring them to life.

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.
