103 Notes from Me to Me (16 selections)

Pen and Sharpie on 103 pieces of copy paper, digitally scanned and altered, 2017, 37"w x 47"h

In 103 Notes from Me to Me, I embarked on the ambitious and meditative practice of writing every day for roughly three months, cataloguing my every day with the only parameters being paper size and writing utensil. I attempt to view my life not as a random sequence but as a volatile story arc steadily working its way to a resolution. Through poetry, jokes, confessions, third-person abstraction, first-person intimacy and hyperbolic scenes, the real, the falsely remembered and the barely possible meld together to form a blurry reflection of a life. Sometimes a romance, sometimes a horror, this ongoing project is always a great story.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
