My art practice is a space were I can freely re-imagine the world around us. Utilizing sculptural and image-based works, I strive to create a dialogue that acknowledges the disparate and varied nature
of current art. By layering and juxtaposing oppositional modes of making and ideologies, a clear interpretation
of the work becomes muddied and the agency of the viewer is asserted. Ultimately I am interested in creating and sustaining these uncertain moments as a way to call into focus how we, as individuals and as a society, confront The Unknown. In this piece, an image of a palm tree has been manipulated to be taller than the tallest tree in the 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.
