Processed woods artificially compress different wood pieces together into one, creating beautiful and often chaotic patterns. In this way, processed woods like OSB, or oriented strand board, represent a departure from the individual experience and are instead a culmination of memories, experiences and origins. I explore my own memories through wood-derived material that I have altered through printmaking and writing. I have used my own prints on paper, personal writings and recycled wood material to create a series of papers that represent this compression of past experience.

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.
