Unnecessary Tension

My current work stems from the framework of perception, particularly in regard to space. It is in either the abyss or compromised architectural sites that I find meaning radiating. These still leftovers of our dominantly activated environment store moments, frozen in time, suspended in mid-motion. The writings of Marc Augé and his ideas about non-places have fueled my interest in the architecture of supermodernism, the aesthetics of distance and discontinuities within the spectacle of globalization. My work seeks to momentarily dislocate questions of identity, to serve as an itinerary, a breakdown of immediacy, where distances are measured in increments of time.

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.
