Ink and gouache on linen, 2017, 47"w x 69"h

I use canvas as a piece of ordinary fabric. I fold, press and unfold the canvas in the way people treat textiles in daily life. Through repetitive action, black ink is pressed into the canvas resulting in dense folds and layers of ink stains. The center, the edges, the front and the back of the canvas are shifted in the process of random folding, leading to an unpredictable image that is revealed only when the canvas is unfolded.

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.
