Peeling of Things

Ink on bark, 2017, 6"w x 7"h x 1"d

The moment of slippage, when one form transitions to the next, is a subject that has caught and held my fascination. Through drawing I am looking into the relationships between the body and nature, especially in terms of the continually growing technological phenomenon that has begun distancing us from the natural world. Finding the point at which something becomes corporeal and then fades into abstraction is a tool I have been using in my drawings to investigate and further understand what it means to exist as a human in the world today.

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.
