I am interested in patterns emerging from an object or dictated by my hand: how they reflect the making of the object, the material of the object, repetitive marks made by hand or machine-made. In these pieces I use parallel lines to create moire patterns in the small discs. The two slits formed by parallel lines on the large disc are a nod to the double-slit experiment in the study of the wave/particle duality of light in physics.

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.
