cyanotypes, 2013, 22"w x 17"h

The physicality of photography is manifest in these cyanotypes. Echoes of my relationship to materials gathered, echoes of the forced relationship between chemistry and paper, material and chemistry, then, finally, the sun making contact with the paper. I utilize the tree as a universal body that continues to mark time beyond death with its growing rings. The imagery is presented in arrangements that highlight the connections between different cycles found in nature.

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.
