Mapping a Story

Silver scrap, silver tubes, steel wire, 2015, 28”w x 6''h x 0.5''d

On the border between nothing and something, empty and full, positive and negative, my work exists. Once what is needed has been taken or cut out, a vacuum is left. My family and I are in constant transition and have been out of place for years. The act of missing home leaves a vacuum in my heart, which I may try to seal or learn to live with, hence to live with the void and with the negative spaces that surround my everyday being. I make sheets out of silver scrap and construct them to a new assembly but keep the surface bare, without polishing, as a remembrance to what the pieces were before and as a way of mark making. Pictorial narratives appear within the spaces of the scraps and flip the background to be the valued foreground.

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.
