I am investigating how design can transform raw materials or found objects from the world of the profane into the world of the poetic symbol. The human hand, the shovel and the skyscraper shape our landscape, but they are not alone. The natural world reworks our finest inventions. Bright and shiny becomes dull and rusty; raw becomes new becomes waste becomes ruin becomes art. One of my most abiding interests is in the dialectical relationship between human industriousness and natural resistance.

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.
