Mirrored Jungle Burst

2009, Gouache and acrylic on paper, 20"w x 26"h

Symmetry is often equated with aesthetic harmony and is a slippery and impermanent symbol of perfection. My work operates in the gray area where symmetry is plausible but just out of reach. I manipulate structural imagery, such as jungle gym equipment, to depict visual hierarchies that tangentially relate to the social and political structures that shape the world around me. My work aims to break down binaries, expose pluralistic truths and embrace contradictions.

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.
