An object is more than physical matter; it is a thing that has presence and character. Although we constantly interact with objects, we tend to negate their thingness—we only consider how objects serve our interests. I want to envision a world of objects that doesn’t exist for humans. I think of my art as an intermediary between objects and me. I treat collaged images as subjects and place them in minimalist fields of color or pattern. My work challenges distinctions between the real and the abstract, depth and flatness, plausibility and irrationality. I create images and objects that playfully elude explanations or conclusions.

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.
