I have always been interested in an aesthetic that conjures both past and future, the real and the fantastical. I have been heavily influenced by the writings of Borges, Marquez, Lorca, and Calvino. Their stories bridge gaps between prehuman and present day experience, implying a search to understand some basic truths and complexities about our existence.

Haruki Murakami writes of parallel universes, and of the people who pass between them – often because of some personal loss or searching. I like to think about these subterranean spaces as netherworlds of the mind and the heart. I have been driven by the questions that this literature asks, but does not answer. Big questions like why are we the way we are? I want to make sense of the senseless.

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.
