2013, Risograph and giclee prints, 19.5"w x 27"h (each)

This set of posters borrows language from the world of marketing and advertising and subverts it, removing familiar words and phrases from their original contexts and juxtaposing them in new and surprising ways. The effect is a humorous and poetic wordplay that is believable yet surreal. The posters elicit a second or a third read, making viewers question what they have just consumed.

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.
