Translation 1: BurgerBagel

beads, thread, acrylic paint on linen with code, 2014, (bagel image) 32.5"w x 12"h x 2"d; (pattern code) 21.25"w x 17.25"h x 1.25"d

Concerned with the evolution of modern communication and the forms through which it occurs, traditional modes of fine art and craft are utilized in a meticulous consideration of the post-human condition. The first in a series of three “translations,” the image of the “BurgerBagel” emerges from the rubble of a common online encounter between artist and machine, later removed from its digital form through re-creation in paint and beads. Individual beads take on the form of pixelated information. The second image exists as a quantitatively exact replica of the first, distortions occurring through the inconsistency of the medium itself.

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.
