Surrounding, Every Day and Things: Bell Installation III

Paper-mache and ceramic, 2017, 26"w x 97"h x 9"d

As I claim that everything is connected in some way to the environment in which we live, I often pay much attention to ordinary things and tend to celebrate the little moments. This installation responds to the conditions of quotidian situations by exploring my immediate environment as landscape and as bells. The Bell Installation series aims to intermediate the relationship of humans and nature, questioning and emphasizing our need to slow down and enjoy our surroundings. By mimicking and referencing nature, the work weaves in parallel between the real and fantasy.

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.
