The Endo-Iso Migration

2012, Graphite and charcoal on paper, 44"w x 30"h

My work is an exploration of parallel universes, multiple dimensions, alternate realities and other planes of existence. I begin by twisting paper into Möbius strips and abstract shapes, creating small sculptures which I then sketch from various perspectives. I add modified scientific diagrams and geometric shapes, forming the basic compositions for my drawings. Forms emerge, suggesting landscapes, vegetation, clouds, architectural structures and man-made systems. They merge to create other-worldly environments that can be interpreted as self-contained universes. Our accepted ideas about time, space, scale and dimension are examined, muddled, disputed; their meanings are taken apart and reconfigured in unexpected ways. Questions are asked——how does one move through such a world where our earthly logic does not seem to apply? And what would one’s existence in such a place be like?

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.
