Cycling of light through space is central in my work. I study how light affects our experience of space, how it makes us feel and behave in particular spaces — whether it is a theater, lighthouse or magnifying glass. I look at how these sources are used in their general or normal context, and then I try to push them into a gray area where they become more fluid as a material containing a new meaning.

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.
