Groceries at Kroger (trying to blend in)

Digital prints, 2016, 17”w x 11”h (each)

Where I grew up, being a “local” was your most important attribute, but I haven’t lived at home for seven years now. I have this feeling of being an outsider in the sense that there’s no culture that I neatly fit into. I’ve been exploring how to navigate a place as an outsider. I’ve been thinking about the different aspects of our environment—whether they’re physical or figurative—such as our social culture, which plays a role in shaping us. I’m exploring our interactions with groceries stores, like Kroger, through noodle sculptures that can transcend to tell a story.

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.
