Bleeding Green Flower

photography, 2015, 22"w x 15"h

Of all places to find a flower, an abandoned incinerator? While on a photo exploration with a fellow photographer, we came across a graffiti-filled building. Among the chaos of spray-painted words and phrases was this peaceful flower. So out of place—almost like a rose in a garden of weeds. I manipulated the colors to make them the opposite of what a flower and heart would look like in order to express the odd placement of these positively connotative objects in a dilapidated environment.

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.
