Pipe insulation, cable connections, lawn grid, 2018, 55"w x 36"h x 24"d

I am inspired by traditional weaving systems and constructed surface processes. I translate these fiber processes with items such as cable ties, pipe insulation and lawn grids to create visceral sculptural forms that evoke a playful, irreverent nature. My work is influenced by the history of textiles, particularly 1960s woven rya rugs and traditional Scandinavian rugs. I use zip ties as a sculptural line, and the ties stand out as pile from the woven rug. The lawn grid makes a grid structure like a traditional weaving structure. These materials allow me to connect disparate materials.

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.
