Tuxedo #2

monofilament, 2014, 18"w x 5.5'h x 12"d

Using the traditional methods of weaving and felting, combined with modern materials, I produce cloth to create sculptural garments and environments. These garments appear to be a distant reminder of a world that is not our own but still feels familiar, like the hazy recollections of our dreams or the ever-shifting shadows of memory. The created environments mirror elements found in nature yet are blurred and reimagined to become new and strange formations. Drawing inspiration from nature, historical clothing and the space between fantasy and reality, I strive to create a sense of discovery and wonder that transports the viewer to a different time, place and world.

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.
