I utilize food imagery as a metaphor of modern consumption to address a material nature and a growing emphasis on sensational experience. From painting and digital collage to textiles and screen-printing, mediums with varied levels of mechanic and analog efforts are employed to shift visual languages toward conceptual discussions in slightly different perspectives. Obvious or ambiguous repetition through printing references mass media advertisements and industrialized production. The visualization comes with a subtle twist—a retrospective of the sublime Romantic landscapes.

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.
