How does light stand in relation to material? And what does emitting mean? How can light be expressed through materiality? In my work I’m fathoming the relationship of the internal expressed through the external. In this piece I tried to work with the fugitiveness and momentariness of light and combine it with the solidity and substantiality of steel in a purified, minimal form. The steel went through a process of refinement with heat, which then affected its shape. The space where the light exits through the material and the two elements meet was of special interest to me. The piece is part of my artistic examination of primordial elements and their inherent manifestation through formal intervention and combination.

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.
