Our relationship to objects—the projection of both the economical and emotional value we place on them—and consequential perception of their preciousness is a continuous consideration in my work. The pieces I have created for my series, Semiprecious/Precious, are a microscopic examination of gemstones during their crystallization and in their consumer-ready faceted cut form. It is my estimation that gemstones in their ancient nature are beyond imaginative invention. We are not equipped to conjure objects so sublime, beautiful and strange, so we project our own measure of values through judgment and classification in order to understand and possess them.

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.
