Pedestals

2012, MDF, house paint, Sizes vary

This project began as an exploration of the ways we present art. My work often incorporates miniature figures; when a person is only an inch tall, I discover that a pedestal becomes a skyscraper. My goal is to blur the line between artwork and presentation. I investigate this by moving beyond the generic shapes and drab colors one normally associates with urban sprawl. The result is a neon landscape where some inhabitants are tucked away while others roam the streets like giants.

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.
