The Yard

assemblage of found objects, 2015, 48"w x 72"h x 30"d

My work originates from the comforts and tensions of personal experience, fusing together the spiritual mystifications and enchantments of life and death among corporeal existence. The objects mark a pathos where the essence of tender forms is used to regenerate the self into a spiritual transcendence of reminiscent healing. Reflecting on my grandfather’s passing and the undertaking of estate and object distribution, my sculptures embody a dedication to several years of transformation from life and concreteness into nonexistence. With the recurring use of twig material (derived from plant life on my grandfather’s property), I form an association of nostalgia within certain pieces that mark a part of my history and transient struggle. In altering the original function of the objects, I aim to cast an ambience on the viewer.

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.
