Is you am a dog

Encaustic on panel, 2012, 30”w x 30”h x 4”d

The weight of centuries of human engineering rests on the ancestry of purebreds so that in many cases they cease to resemble any animal that could survive in nature. Traits have been bred into them that are human constructs for human purposes and enjoyment. And they are the subjects of endless emotional projection by humans. They are our most enduring form of ornamentation. A science has been made out of their pedigree. I am intrigued by those moments where they break out of this role, when they are at their most uncontrollable, energetic and awkward.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
