Responding directly to an earlier piece,
These two new works are a rare sort for me: abstractions which attempt to convey meaning. Earlier this year I was asked to create a piece for Chamber Music, an exhibition at Frye Art Museum featuring 36 artists “who contribute to activities which strengthen Seattle’s art community.” My piece was about our community existing between great times, like a seed, pregnant with life, lying in wait in the darkness.
For a new show at SAM Gallery, I was asked to create a few new works in the same aesthetic style. I decided to work not only with the aesthetic, but also the meaning, so these two are about growth in that darkness; a slow, deliberate rebirth.
The show continues through August 17, 2013.
