The age-old struggle between man and nature continues fervently. My work underscores the struggle between these powerful entities as we grapple with technology to “master” our world, sometimes to our own demise, much as I struggle with technology to make these works. This line of thought beckons us to reconcile what ties and divides us with the animals of the world. It begs us to weigh our responsibility to conserve. Lines and colors clash and converge, abstracting nature into geometry or geometry into nature. We must find a peace between these conflicting demands to survive our own selves.

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.
