Swaying Parrots

String art, 2016, 36"w x 24"h x 0.75"d

I created Swaying Parrots with the goal of suggesting movement in a 3-D representation. After visiting my local zoo and studying the movements of several different birds, I composed this piece. Because the large nails are kept about an inch from the surface of the wood and the string is tightly wrapped around the tips of the nail heads, when the light shines on the parrots there are several shadows being cast on the wood, creating a sense of motion.

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.
