The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp

2011, Digital print, 36"w x 55"h

This is about embracing commercial design tools to a dangerous magnitude and possessing an unrepentant motivation to exploit them. I love these tools so much that I have no choice but to abuse them. This glutinous abandon to hide technique has become its own process. Now the means to the end has become the end itself. The result is ultimately overbearing and obnoxious, but beautifully so. I want to apply this strategy to a (re)brand new history. This new hyper-history has the privilege of fixing the mistakes of its predecessor, allowing it to be cleaner and more easily consumable.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
