heat on subway transfers, 2007, 20"w x 28"h x 1"d

This work depicts the role of a woman in her daily life. She is the warmth and the principal pillar of a family, for she is a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandmother, a wife and a friend. She is a voice within society, a defender of women’s rights, a poet, an artist, a mediator and wears many more hats. Without a doubt she is not only such a symbol but also a movement of life. To create this work I applied heat-emitting objects as painting instruments on heat-sensitive subway transfers.

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.
