Metal, wood, spray paint, 2017, 22"w x 60"h x 22"d

Making a connection between the natural and the manufactured was the idea behind this piece. The table consists of round stock and sheet metal for the base, with cut beams of wood for the tabletop, representing the manufactured side. On top of the table is a large tree trunk representing the natural side. The idea to label the table “table” and the trunk “plant” with spray paint is a tongue-in-cheek addition that reduces each aspect of the piece down to its bare essentials, heightening the tension between the natural and the manufactured.

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.
